Abstract : Efforts toward the synthesis of polycyclic high density, high energy oxidizers have involved examination of synthetic paths to the hexaazaadamantane framework. Routes examined include condensation of amides with an orthoformate, reaction of tris(acylamino) methanes with orthoformate and cyclizations based on acylated perhydrotriazines. The cyclization chemistry of a pentaazabicyclononadiene is also under investigation. Several routes to tetranitrazabicyclooctane ('bicyclic HMX') have also been examined including modification of the preformed tetraazabicyclooctane ring system and cyclization approaches. (Author)
