ABSTRACT: In an attempt to develop novel oxidizer materials that the DoD requires for use in missile systems to meet performance and sensitivity requirements, NALAS proposes to screen potential candidates for suitability using first known and predicted information. Specific types of materials under consideration will be those possessing intra/intermolecular hydrogen bonds such as those appearing in molecules like TATB and FOX-7, which appear to stabilize these materials, and derivatives of 3,4-diaminofurazan. Promising materials will be synthesized and evaluated for suitability using sensitivity, thermal stability characteristics, and projected performance. Candidates meeting all requirements will be proposed for further study in a Phase II effort, in which they will be tested for performance in formulation. BENEFIT: Anticipated benefits are identification of novel oxidizer materials for use in missile systems that meet the performance and sensitivity requirements outlined in IHPRPT. In addition to use in military applications, such materials could be made available for space applications and commercial gun and/or airbag propellants.
