Energetic materials are a class of material with high amount of stored chemical energy that can be released. Typical classes of energetic materials are e.g. explosives, pyrotechnic compositions, propellants (e.g. smokeless gun powders and rocket fuels), and fuels (e.g. diesel fuel and gasoline). The novel functionality of aromatic tetrazole derivatives with high nitrogen content predetermines a great interest to tetrazole-containing polymers. The tetrazole-based nitrogen-rich polymers were well investigated. The tetrazole rings play an important role in development of energetic polymers. The high thermal stability of these rings causes the polymers as good candidates as energetic applications. The aim of the present work is to synthesize novel nano-sized high energy density polymers based on tetrazole rings. The resulted polymer was characterized by SEM, 1H NMR and 13C NMR
