Abstract:

Preliminary experiments are described where ethyl centralite, a stabilizer commonly used in double base propellant compositions, was reacted with nitric acid in various concentrations. The chemical transformations resulted in many derivatives which were separated, identified and analyzed by thin layer chromatography and instrumental methods. The analytical knowledge acquired will be exploited in stability studies involving artificially aged gun propellants.
