Abstract:

The objective of this project is to synthesize advanced propellant ingredients of the propulsion system. This task is divided into two categories Synthesis of new strained molecules Study of thermochemical properties of new strained molecules. This report covers the efforts towards synthesis of new pentanitrobis-homocubane and its isomer. During the course of this synthetic endeavor a novel base-promoted eliminative cyclization was observed which lead to the synthesis of two new functionalized strained ring systems Tetracyclo6.2. 1.02,7.04,10-undecane and Tetracyclo5.3.0.02,6.05,9 decane.
