Applicants have discovered a new composition of matter which is an explosive addition compound of ammonium nitrate (AN) and diethylenetriamine trinitrate (DETN) in a 50:50 molar ratio. The compound is stable over extended periods of time only at temperatures higher than 46°C., decomposing to a fine-grained eutectic mixture (which is also believed to be new) of AN and DETN at temperatures lower than 46°C. The compound of the invention has an x-ray density of 1.61 g/cm3, explodes to form essentially only gaseous products, has higher detonation properties (...
An explosive composition comprising the equimolar double salt of ammonium nitrate and diethylenetriamine trinitrate, said composition having a density of about 1.61 g/cm3 and being characterized by an X-ray diffraction pattern as shown in the right-hand column of Table I labeled Compound/115°C.
