Abstract : In accordance with this invention, there is provided a novel family of azido fluorodinitro amines which are energetic liquids and find particular utility as energetic plasticizers in advance solid propellants. Azidomethyl bis(flurodinitroethyl) amine (AMFA) and 0-(1,2-diazidopropyl) N,N-bis(fluorodinotroethyl) amino methanol (DAFAM) are two examples of this family of amines which have been found to be unexpectedly effective in overcoming the problem of smoke in the exhaust gases produced during the operational phase of a solid propellant composition. The energetic plasticizers and are used in the propellant in a ratio of from about 1.5 to 4.0 parts of plasticizers to about 1.0 part of binder to produce a significant increase in energy coupled with a minimum production of smoke.
