Abstract : The patent discusses novel thiols of the formula CX (NO2)2CH2SH wherein X is nitro, fluoro, chloro, bromo, or lower alkyl of from 1 to 4 carbon atoms, which are prepared by contacting triflates of the formula CX(NO2)2CH2OSO2CF3 with CH3(CO)S to form thioacetals of the formula CX(NO2)2CH2S(CO)CH3 which are then isolated from the reaction mixture and subjected to acid hydrolysis to form the thiols. The energy content of unsaturated propellant and explosive binders can be increased by the free radical addition of the nitro and halonitro thiols of this invention to the binders.
