Abstract:

This research was undertaken to investigate the suitability of high resolution proton and carbon-13 Fourier transform NMR spectroscopy for the qualitative and quantitative analysis of compounds of the type used in propellant formulations. Materials studied include polymers, plasticizers, aromatic nitro compounds, aliphatic nitrate esters, carboranes, stabilizers, and related materials. It was found that NMR analysis is of great utility in the chemical analysis of propellant ingredients, particularly carbon-13 NMR, both for qualitative and quantitative analysis.
