Optimization of potassium dinitramide preparation

Tomasz Gołofit , Paweł Maksimowski , Ariel Biernacki


The synthesis of potassium dinitramide (KDN), an intermediate in the ammonium dinitramide (ADN) synthesis, was optimized to reduce the costs of the ADN synthesis in order to facilitate competitiveness of this oxidizer with ammonium perchlorate (AP). The optimal conditions for the synthesis of KDN like feedstock molar ratio, nitration time, and temperature were determined. KDN was obtained in ca. 48 \% yield. The modifications introduced allowed to reduce feedstock consumption and energy intensity of the process.
