Abstract : In accordance with this invention, there is provided a novel family of azido nitramino ethers which are energetic liquids and find particular utility as energetic plasticizers in advanced solid propellants. These include bis (2-azidoethoxymethyl) nitramine (MNDA) and 1, 12-diazido-3,10-dioxa-5,8-dinitrazadodecane (DDDD). They represent two examples of this family of amines and have been found to be unexpectedly effective in overcoming the problem of flame in the exhaust gases produced during the operational phase of a solid propellant composition. The primary object of this invention is to provide a novel family of azido nitramino ethers. Another object of this invention is to provide a novel solid propellant composition that produces only minimum amounts of flame during its operational phase. Still another object of this invention is to provide a novel family of azido nitramino ethers that find particular utility as energetic plasticizers for advanced solid propellant compositions.
