3, 3'-Bis(tetrazol-5-yl)difurazanyl ether was designed and synthesized with a yield of 46.7% from 3-amino-4-cyano furazan through oxidation, ertherification and cyclization, and was characterized by 13C NMR, IR, MS and elemental analysis. In addition, the mechanism of cyclization promoted by Zn 2+ was proposed and discussed, and the reaction conditions of cyclization were optimized as follows: time is 4 h, ZnCl 2·2H 2O as catlyst, molar ratio of ZnCl 2·2H 2O to FOF-2 is 1:1.
