Desensitization of Explosive Materials
Progress rept. no. 1, 15 May-14 Jun 1976
STANFORD RESEARCH INST MENLO PARK CA
Pagination or Media Count:
The objective of the work reported here is to determine the generality of the recent discovery that substitution of fluorine for hydrogen in an explosive material leads to desensitization. In earlier work for Lawrence Livermore Laboratory ERDA it was discovered that substitution of the -CH2- group in FEFO with a -CF2- group reduces the sensitivity to impact and low velocity detonation LVD. A comparison of the sensitivity characteristics and physical properties of FEFO and DFF are shown.
