Abstract : This patent application presents the synthesis of unsymmetrical nitro and fluoronitro acetals of the formulas ROCH(CH3)OR' wherein R does not equal R', but wherein both R and R' are selected from the group consisting of -CH2CXY(NO2), - CH2C(NO2)2CH3, -CH2CUVCXY(NO2), and -CH2CUVCWZCXY(NO2), wherein X and Y vary independently and are selected from the group consisting of F and NO2, and wherein U, V, W, and Z vary independently and are selected from the group consisting of H, F, and NO2. These compounds are useful as energetic plasticizers in rocket propellants or explosives.
