Reagent for N-NO2 Scission
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
The most important objective of the Phase I program is to demonstrate the feasibility of certain partially reduced organic hydrogen transfer regents to effect N-NO2 scission, as described in the Phase I work plan. The product of this denitration transformation would be an environmentally benign derivative of the hydrogen transfer regent or would be readily regenerated into the proposed regent, depending on the preferred approach. Another specific objective will be to conduct a comprehensive literature search for the most economical and efficient derivatives suitable for development in such a process. Small-scale feasibility testswill be conducted in the laboratory, and a cost/efficiency analysis will predict the most promising systems for development.
