Abstract:

The objective of this program was to synthesize and characterize selected organodi- and polyammonium nitrate salts for use in a qualitative study of thermal and impact stability characteristics. A total of twenty-two salts were prepared and characterized. A literature search confirmed that fifteen of these materials had never been reported and, therefore, were assumed to be original. The general synthetic process is described with specific details for each compound included. Elemental analyses are provided for the new compounds as well as their nuclear magnetic resonance spectra. Other data included are densities calculated and measured, heats of fusion, melting points, and the temperature of the major peak associated with exothermic decomposition as measured by a differential scanning calorimeter.
