Preliminary experiments are described in which ethyl centralite, a stabilizer frequently used in double-base propellants, was reacted with nitrous acid in various concentrations. The chemical reactions taking place led to the formation of numerous derivatives which were separated, identified and analysed by thin-layer chromatography and electronic absorption spectroscopy. The analytical knowledge gained will be used to advantage in stability investigations of artificially aged gun propellants.
