Philip Eaton
Philip E. Eaton is a Professor Emeritus of Chemistry at the University of Chicago. He and his fellow researchers were the first to synthesize the "impossible" cubane molecule in 1964. Working with Mao-Xi Zhang he is reported as having been the first to make octanitrocubane in 2000 or earlier. Because of its high density and highly strained C-C bonds it is a very powerful high explosive.
