1,3,5-Triazido-2,4,6-trinitrobenzene, also known as TATNB (triazidotrinitrobenzene) and TNTAZB (trinitrotriazidobenzene), is an aromatic high explosive composed of a benzene ring with three azido groups (N3) and three nitro groups (NO2) alternating around the ring. It has chemical formula C6(N3)3(NO2)3. Its velocity of detonation is 7,350 meters per second, comparable to TATB.
