Abstract:

Synthetic methods for introduction of the pendant high-energy groups nitro and azido into olefinic polymers have been devised. Nitromercuration, basepromoted demercuration and reductive removal of residual mercury yields olefinicc polymers with a nitro content of up to 15-20 of theoretical. Azidoiodination followed by dehydroiodination produces azidized olefinic polymers with an azide content of up to 60 of theoretical. Substrates have been polycis-1,4-butadiene, CTBN, and HTPB.
