US Patent: Cl-20: DNMT Cocrystal Crystal Structure

Jerry Salan, Stephen R. Anderson, “Cl-20: DNMT Cocrystal Crystal Structure”, US Patent 2015/0361056A1.


A cocrystal of CL-20 (2,4,6,8,10,12-hexanitro-2,4,6,8,10,12-hexaazaisowurtzitane) and DNMT (1-methyl-3,5-dinitro-1,2,4-triazole) was formed through a resonant acoustic mixing process. The resulting cocrystal comprised an essentially 1:1 stoichiometric ratio between these coformers. The cocrystal advantageously has decreased sensitivity when compared with a pure CL-20 sample, and maintains thermal stability and comparable energetic performance.
