Abstract
Luna Innovations will perform high temperature (200oF) thermal testing on nitrate ester mixtures and determine the stabilizer depletion reaction rate kinetics, as well as compare the rate kinetics of different stabilizer compounds. Novel polymer and oligomeric stabilizer compounds will have their depletion kinetics measured and an optimal candidate will be chosen for scale up and formulation with double base propellants. The ultimate goal is to identify a process for making a double-base propellant system that has superior long-term stability at high temperatures, therefore providing the Navy with safer propellant cartridges that possess extended service lives.
