A study is being conducted on the synthesis of two high-energy liquid oxidizers by means of fission fragment radiolysis. Irradiation capsules and fissile fuel were procured and calibration of energy deposition was begun. Most materials for the irradiations, including NF3 and N2F4, were ordered and received. One irradiation was conducted to gain handling and analytical experience. A method is to be developed under a subcontract for direct determination of fluorine. It appears that fewer calibration irradiations will be required than the ten originally estimated. Author
