Thermal decomposition of secondary N-nitramines having azole substituents in the position is faster by almost two orders of magnitude than the decomposition of -substituted analogs. The rate-determining stage is homolytic dissociation of the NÄNO2 bond. An alternative route of thermal decomposition of -tetrazolyl-substituted N-nitramines involves initial clavage of the tetrazole ring.
