disagree  David Moore: Although it's a synonym, it's virtually unknown. Post "lead styphnate", and I'll happily agree...Got lots of other names too, but they are all too specialist, aren't they...

agree  gvetek: These synonyms occur in both German and English, Bleistyphnat and Bleitricinat, as well as lead styphnate and lead tricinate, respectively. The official "IUPAC" name would be "2,4,6-trinitro-1,3-benzenediol lead(2 ) salt", which reflects the structure.
