Abstract : A series of high-density 7-(N-methyl-N-alkylamino)-1-3-5 triazaadamantanes are prepared. The preparation involves first adding the alkyl group to the parent amine by reacting the amine with a suitable aldehyde and hydrogen in the presence of a platinum catalyst and then reacting the thus produced secondary amine with formaldehyde and hydrogen in the presence of a nickel catalyst to produce the final product. The series represents a new class of fuels which is particularly useful in volume-limited applications. (Author)
