For a screenplay - I need to know if the following is possible; joining the components to make up Aziroazide azide from three separate lakes where the items exist pulled up to a mother ship where they are combined - my hope is that the C2N14 will be formed and thanks to its high instability destroy the mother ship. Is this plausible?

    $\begingroup$ You'd probably have better luck in the chemistry stackexchange. By the way, aziroazide azide is a joke name if I refer to en.wiktionary.org/wiki/azidoazide_azide $\endgroup$ – Sasugasm Jan 4 '19 at 14:50
  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to worldbuilding. As pointed out in the previous comment, you are asking us if it is somehow possible to produce something which is only a joke in a blog. Can you clarify? Please take the tour and visit the help center to better understand this community, $\endgroup$ – L.Dutch - Reinstate Monica Jan 4 '19 at 15:32

    $\begingroup$ @L.Dutch: The substance itself is not a joke. The name is a joke; the proper name of the substance in question is 1-diazidocarbamoyl-5-azidotetrazole. What the question asks if it is possible to find a way to produce it spontaneously from precursors. Unfortunately, there isn't. (Hint: the substance is an explosive. Its components very much prefer to be separate than together.) $\endgroup$ – AlexP Jan 4 '19 at 15:36
  • $\begingroup$ @L.Dutch, did you delete my comment? It's gone missing. $\endgroup$ – JBH Jan 4 '19 at 15:47
  • $\begingroup$ @JBH, that was an answer in comment. You are welcome to repost it where it belongs, once the issue on the name is solved $\endgroup$ – L.Dutch - Reinstate Monica Jan 4 '19 at 15:55
