The work carried out under this contract was concerned primarily with attempts to synthesize dinitroacetylene. Only two nitroacetylenes have as yet been reported, namely isopropyl- and t-butyl-nitroacetylene, both of which were made originally by elimination of hydrogen halide from suitable precursors under rather drastic conditions. A subsidiary objective of this work was to develop new methods for preparing nitroacetylenes in general. While neither objective has been attained, the results reported here seem to have led to a better understanding of the problems involved.
