AbstractFour new compounds with potential use as low-sensitivity secondary explosives were prepared from readily available and inexpensive starting materials: pentaerythritol, diethanolamine, and chloramphenicol. Experimental and theoretical properties for each new compound are described, as well as their potential use as energetic materials.
