Tetranitromethane: A Nightmare of Molecular Flexibility in the Gaseous and Solid States

After 70 years of numerous attempts to determine the structure of the high-energy molecule tetranitromethane, it has become possible to describe the electron and X-ray scattering data of the gas and two solid phases, respectively. In their Communication (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201704396), N. W. Mitzel et al. report the structural analysis of this nightmare of molecular flexibility. The cover picture shows Johann Heinrich Füssli's “The Nightmare” from 1790, a model of the solid high-temperature phase, and an ignition experiment.
