Abstract:

An object of this invention is to provide a novel organic compound. Another object of this invention is to provide a new energetic coplasticizer for plastic-bonded explosives. A further object of this invention is to provide an energetic coplasticizer having good thermal stability. Still another object of this invention is to provide new energetic plasticizer mixtures. A still further object of this invention is to provide an energetic plasticizer mixture having the same high energy content as FEFO but a lower volatility than FEFO. These and other objects of this invention are achieved by providing a new compound bis2-fluoro-2,2-dinitroethoxyacetonitrile and a method of preparing it.
