Sodium salts of iodine-rich pyrazole and imida- zole with 1-(2-bromoethyl)-5-aminotetrazole are useful precursors for energetic N,N’-ethylene-bridged polyiodoa- zoles. Compounds 1–3 were characterized with IR, and 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy as well as elemental analyses. The molecular structures of 1 and 2 were confirmed by using single crystal X-ray diffraction. Heats of formation were calculated using Gaussian 03 and detonation proper- ties and biocidal efficiency were calculated with CHEE- TAH 7. The decomposition products of 1–3 destroy microbes more effectively than some previously reported biocides since the thermal decomposition occurs at below 4008C without addition of oxidizer or combustion adjuvant.
