Abstract : An object of this invention is to provide a new energetic compound. Another object of this invention is to provide a new energetic plasticizer for explosives and propellants. A further object of this invention is to provide a high energy plasticizer which is more chemically and thermally stable than nitroglycerin. Yet another object of this invention is to provide an energetic plasticizer which is less volatile than nitroglycerin. These and other objects of this invention are achieved by providing, 1-fluoro-1,1,5-trinitro-3-oxa-5-azahexane which is prepared by reacting one mole of an acetate with one mole of 2-fluoro-2,2-dinitroethanol.
