Abstract:

Hydroxy-terminated poly2,2-dinitropropyl polynitroorthocarbonate prepolymers of the formula structural formula which are prepared by reacting bis2,2-dinitropropyl dichloroformal with a diol of the formula structural formula wherein n1. and wherein W, X, Y, and Z vary independently and are F or NO2, and wherein -A- is CH2-, -CH2CH2-, -CH2CH2CH2-, -CF2-, -CF2CF2-, -CF2CF2CF2-, -CF2CF2CF2CF2-, -CH2OCH2-, -CH2OCH2OCH2-, -CH2OCF2OCH2-, or -CH2N NO2CH2-. These prepolymers are reacted with curing agents e.g., polyisocyanates to form energetic polymeric binders.
