Abstract:

In this mini grant, the project director has focused his effort on the study of the propellant UPP. The composition of UPP is listed as follows CTBN- Carboxy-terminated butadieneacylonitrile, PTECA- CCOOH4 prime HX-868- Methylaziridine phthalate, TMETN- Trimethyloethane trinitrate, NMNA- N-nitroso-N-methyl-p-nitroaniline, HMX- Cyclotetramethylene tetranitramine, AP- Ammonium Perchlorate, Al-Aluminium. First attempt was to extract NMNA from UPP by various solvents benzene, carbon tetrachloride, methylene chloride, chloroform and dichloro-ethyl ether. At various experimental stages, we tried the above-mentioned solvents at different concentrations95-99. As compared with the previous studies of N-methyl-p-aniline MNA, NMNA did not produce a peak due to the N-H at the methyl carbon in MNA by Fourier transformation infrared spectra. kt
