Nitryl Cyanide, NCNO2.
Journal article, 2014

The elusive nitryl cyanide, NCNO2, has been synthesized and characterized. It was prepd. in good yield, isolated by fractional condensation, characterized by NMR and vibrational spectroscopy, and studied by theor. calcns. Nitryl cyanide holds promise as a high energy d. material (HEDM) and might also prove useful as a HEDM building block. The simplicity and inherent stability of nitryl cyanide, together with the known multitude of nitriles in interstellar space, suggest that the compd. might also be a potential candidate for observations in atm. and interstellar chem.
