Abstract:

A method of preparing dichloroformals of the formula RCH202CC12 by reaction of one mole of a thionocarbonate of the formula RCH202CS with two moles of benzenesulfenyl chloride, chlorobenzenesulfenyl chloride, or methanesulfenyl chloride wherein R is -CNO23, -CFNO22, -CF2NO2, -CClNO22, -CNO22CH3, -CCl3, -CF3, or -CF2CF3. These energetic dichloroformals are useful as explosive and propellant ingredients and as intermediates in the synthesis of other energetic explosive and propellant ingredient.
