Abstract:

BASED ON STEROIDS LTD.'S PRIOR EXPERIENCE IN THE SYNTHESIS OF NITRODIPHENYLAMINO-N-NITROSO COMPOUNDS AND NITROCENTRALITIES, AS WELL AS KNOWLEDGE OF THEIR BEHAVIOR, SPECTROSCOPIC CHARACTERIZATION, AND ISOLATION, WE NOW PROPOSE TO RESPOND TO THE CRITICAL NEED FOR A WIDE RANGE OF THESE COMPOUNDS WHICH ARE ESSENTIAL IN THE AREA OF EVALUATION OF POLYOLNITRATE EXPLOSIVE LIFETIMES. WE WILL SYNTHESIZE 18 KEY N-NITROSO-NITRODIPHENYLAMINES, 4 NITROCENTRALITES, AND 2(13) C-ENRICHED NITROCENTRALITIES. COMPLETE (1)H, (13)C, (15)N, FTIR, UV-VIS AND GC-MS DATA WILL BE OBTAINED. HPLC BEHAVIOR WILL BE ESTABLISHED FOR THE N-NITROSO-NITRODIPHENYLAMINES AND NITROCENTRALITES. THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS WORK IS THAT PURE SAMPLES OF ABSOLUTE STRUCTURAL HOMOGENEITY ARE INDISPENSABLE PREREQUISITES FOR ANALYSIS OF POLYOL NITRATE EXPLOSIVES, AND FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DETAILED MECHANISM OF THEIR IN SITU FORMATION, AS WELL AS ESTABLISHMENT OF A TIME-COURSE ANALYSIS OF FORMATION TO BE USED AS AN INDEX OF EXPLOSIVE USEFUL LIFETIME. AN ULTIMATE LONG TERM GOAL IS ACQUISITION OF A CENTRAL LARGE SCALE REPOSITORY OF THE SAMPLES FOR DISTRIBUTION.
