5-Chloro-4,6-dinitrobenzofuroxan, prepared by nitration of 5-chlorobenzofuroxan, isomerizes thermally to 7-chloro-4,6-dinitrobenzofuroxan. The latter compound reacts with water, in the presence of potassium bicarbonate, to give the potassium salt of 7-hydroxy-4,6-dinitrobenzofuroxan and with methanol, in the presence of potassium bicarbonate, to give potassium 4,7-dihydro-4,6-dinitro-7,7-dimethoxybenzofuroxanide.
