Abstract:

The report summarizes a six-month period of research on the relationship between detonation phenomena, chemical structure, and kinetics for isomeric dinitropropanes and other nitroalkanes. Research on dinitroalkanes is being carried out in three areas high velocity detonation HVD, low velocity detonation LVD, and static high pressure and kinetic effects. Failure diameter measurements for three dinitroalkanes show an alpha-hydrogen effect, and a large methylene effect as well. The detonation of the following compounds were studied 1,1-dinitropropane, 1,1-dinitroethane, and 1,1,1-fluorodinitroethane.
