Dont forget pentaborane and aluminum phosphide. These are stabile enough to be made in reasonable quantities transported and used commercially. Thus are actually more dangerous to the general public than your list of five which are spectacular but esoteric.

Re: azidoazide azide: "This term is not a real chemical name. The blogger Derek Lowe made up this term as a joke when referring to "1-diazidocarbamoyl-5-azidotetrazole". The joke name azidoazide azide has, however, been used since then, sometimes jokingly in imitation of Lowe, and sometimes apparently without realization of the joke origins of the name."

C2N14 is not called Azidoazide Azide.
It was jokingly called that by a dude in his chemistry blog and for some reason it's caught on as the real name by people not knowing this and people jokingly referring to his joke name for it.

0:40 for context, the German Rocket Fighter, the Me-163, used hypergolic fuel, which meant that the two substances used to fuel it exploded on contact with each other. And if the oxider leaked into the cockpit, it could immediately kill the pilot, leaving behind nothing but a skeleton.

that last part was not hypothetical, by the way: it happened on at least one occasion

So yeah, the people desperate enough to use THAT looked at this and said, "yeah how about no?"

Because Germany IS KNOWN FOR CHEMISTRY. Chem majors are advised to fulfill their language requirement with German. Germans are THE chemists. Scientists study the world. People who are NOT scientists find ways to use these discoveries in nefarious ways.

i think what defines a strong acid and a weak acid is dependent on what type of bonding it has between the acidic proton to the conjugate base AND the polarity of the atoms of the conjugate base, Acetic acid is weak because the proton bonds to oxygen, and we know that oxygen is one of the 2nd most electronegative element in the periodic table, so it will rarely give up the proton AND oxygen is the most electronegative atom in Acetic acid, so the positive charges of carbon and hydrogen gives a more stable compound than the acetate conjugate base, making it a weak acid. On the other hand, Fluoroantimonic Acid, the proton bonds to Antimony, which has an electronegativity value lower than hydrogen (Sb =~2.05, H =~2.15), PLUS it has 7 VERY ELECTRONEGATIVE FLUORINE ATOMS bonded to antimony, making antimony VERY POSITIVE and hydrogen is also POSITIVE, so antimony will really repel the 2 positive hydrogen protons thereby making it a VERY strong acid

So how do they work with AA in the creation process? How do you they know so much of it if they can never observe well. If it just blows up instantly.
