Abstract:

Accordingly, an object of this invention is to provide novel, high-melting nitrate esters. Another object of this invention is to provide nitrate esters that have short term stability in the vicinity of 150 C. A further object of this invention is to provide high-melting nitrate esters with a wide range of melting points and sensitivities for use as initiation train explosives andor as booster explosives. These and other objects of this invention are accomplished by providing a nitrate ester which is 2,4,6-trinitro-1-2-hydroxyethylamino-3-2-hydroxyethyliitraminobenzenedinitrate 2,4,6-trainitro-1,3,5-tris2-hydroxyethylaminobenzenetrinitrate 2,2,4,4,6,6-hexanitro-3-2-hydroxyethylnitraminostilbeneitrate 2,5-bis3-hydroxyethylaminonitrate-2,4,6-trinitrophenyl-1,3,4-oxadiazole or 2,5-bis3-hydroxyethylaminonitrate-5-hydroxyethylnitraminonitrate-2,4,6-t rinitrophenyl-1,3,4-oxadiazole.
