Abstract : A process for synthesizing energetic ethers, esters and acetals is disclosed that comprises reacting certain alcohols with certain alkenes or alkynes in the presence of mercuric or mercurous sulfate. The products obtained are particularly useful as plasticizers, monomers or pre-polymers for propellant binder systems. (Author)
