Problem 13.140

The compound hexaazaisowurtzitane is one of the highest-energy explosives known (C & E News, p. 26, Jan. 17, 1994). The compound, also known as CL-20, was first synthesized in 1987. The method of synthesis and detailed performance data are still classified information because of CL-20s potential military application in rocket boosters and in warheads of smart weapons. The structure of CL-20 is N N N N N N G G G NO2 NO2 NO2 O2N O2N O2N D D D In such shorthand structures, each point where lines meet represents a carbon atom. In addition, the hydrogens attached to the carbon atoms are omitted. Each of the six carbon atoms has one hydrogen atom attached. Three possible reactions for the explosive decomposition of CL-20 are i. C6H6N12O12(s) 88n 6CO(g) 1 6N2(g) 1 3H2O(g) 1 3 2O2(g) ii. C6H6N12O12(s) 88n 3CO(g) 1 3CO2(g) 1 6N2(g) 1 3H2O(g) iii. C6H6N12O12(s) 88n 6CO2(g) 1 6N2(g) 1 3H2(g) a. Use bond energies to estimate DH for these three reactions. b. Which of the three reactions releases the largest amount of energy per kilogram of CL-20?
