Abstract : Fluorine-containing resin binders may impart both thermal stability and, in conjunction with metal hydrides, high impulse to solid propellants. The synthesis of monomers and condensation polymers of high F2 content which would be useful in solid propellant applications is being studied. Three approaches to such polymers are being explored. The first is the telomerization of fluoro-olefins by H2O2 to prepare diol prepolymers for formation of polyurethanes and other condensation polymers. The second is a study of the free-radical coupling of monofunctional fluoro-organic compounds to form difunctional monomers such as diols, diamines, diacids and diisocyanates. The third approach involves reaction of commercial difunctional compounds and their derivatives to form more conventional F2-containing polyesters, polyamides, polyureas, and polyurethanes. (Author)
