Abstract : A basic research program was carried out in the area of inorganic halogen oxidizers. The program resulted in 27 papers published in major technical journals, 12 papers presented at international and national meetings, and 6 issued and 4 pending U.S. patents. The main effort of this program was in the areas of nitrogen fluoride and halogen fluoride chemistry. Numerous new energetic NF4 salts were synthesized and characterized, among which was (NF4)2 XeF8, a compound with the highest known usable fluorine content (71.7 weight %).
