Abstract:

There is provided the compound 4-azido-4,4-dinitro-1-butanol ADNBOH and a method for making same which comprises reacting trinitromethane and acrolein at a reduced temperature to provide 4,4,4-trinitrobutyraldehyde TNBA1, reducing the TNBSI to provide 4,4-trinitro-1-butanol TNBOH which is further reduced to provide 4,4-dinitro-1-butanol DNBOH, reacting the DNBOH with acetyl chloride to provide 4,4-dinitro-1-butyl acetate DNBAc, reacting the DNBAc with an alkali metal azide in an electrolysis cell to provide 4-azido-4,4-dinitro-1-butyl acetate ADNBAc and reacting the ADNBAc with a lower alcohol and recovering the 4-azido-4,4-dinitro-1-butanol ADNBOH. Also provided are several azidodinitro derivatives of 4-azido-4,4-dinitro-1-butanol and methods for making same. Butanol, Nitro radicals, Azides. Patents. mjm
