An object of this invention is to provide new energetic explosive compounds. Other objects of this invention are to provide new pentafluorothio polyaliphatic explosives to provide new high melting pentafluorothio polyaliphatic explosives to provide new high energy, high density explosives and to provide new high energy explosives having good thermal stabilities. This invention provides new high energy, high density, high melting explosives which contain both pentafluorothioethyl, -CH2CH2SF5, groups and polynitroaliphatic groups. These compounds are prepared by the reaction of pentafluorothioethanol, F5SCH2OH, with selected polynitroaliphatic reactants. The pentafluorothioethanol can be prepared by the reduction of pentafluorothioacetyl chloride with lithium aluminum hydride. Keywords Patents. AW
