This patent application presents the synthesis of unsymmetrical nitro and fluoronitro acetals of the formulas ROCHCH3OR wherein R does not equal R, but wherein both R and R are selected from the group consisting of -CH2CXYNO2, - CH2CNO22CH3, -CH2CUVCXYNO2, and -CH2CUVCWZCXYNO2, wherein X and Y vary independently and are selected from the group consisting of F and NO2, and wherein U, V, W, and Z vary independently and are selected from the group consisting of H, F, and NO2. These compounds are useful as energetic plasticizers in rocket propellants or explosives.
