Abstract : Investigations to introduce as many functional groups in the cage hydrocarbons, e.g. adamantane, diamantane, and norbornadiene dimer, as specifically as possible are being pursued. The procedures typically involve specific introduction of a limited number of halogens (bromines or chlorines) by ionic reactions, followed by photochemical chlorination. With adamantane, 13 chlorines have been introduced in this manner. A sample is being transmitted to Army contractors in the USA to explore conversion to high density energy materials.
