Abstract
In the Phase I effort proposed, a novel polymeric, environmentally-friendly nitrogen phase will be grafted to a nitrogen-derivatized carbon nanostructure using electromagnetic radiation-, plasma-, and electrochemically-assisted chemical reactions involving precursors with high nitrogen content. Based on structural and energetic properties obtained as well as on process cost-effectiveness, one synthetic route will be downselected for optimization and scale-up during the optional period and Phase II. Because of the high stability of the triply bonded nitrogen molecule, the singly bonded nitrogen polymer will be highly energetic; however, insensitivity and ambient pressure and temperature stabilization will be achieved via grafting and confinement within the nanostructured carbon template.
