Abstract:

The application of the ICP to the nitrolysis of HMX was studied. The feasibility on bench scale and pilot plant scale was demonstrated. Design parameters for a complete continuous ICP pilot plant were obtained for the production of crude HMX via DAPT-DADN-HMX technology. Each chemical step was made in the present CSD pilot plant under continuous process conditions. Author
