Abstract

The reaction of dicyanamide ionic liquids with nitric acid results in hypergolic ignition and the formation of a stable precipitate. The precipitate consists of cyclic triazines, including melamine and its polymers, such as melam and melem (see scheme). This study introduces a novel approach to the synthesis of cyclic azines without resorting to high temperatures and pressures.
