Abstract : In accordance with this invention, there is provided a novel compound which acts effectively as a plasticizer for propellant compositions without the attendant problems of plasticizer migration which often arise during propellant storage. The plasticizer of this invention is a linoleate ester. The primary object of this invention is to provide a novel linoleate ester plasticizer having a particular molecular structure. Another object of this invention is to provide a novel solid propellant composition that produces only minimum amounts of plasticizer migration during its shelflife. Still another object of this invention is to provide a novel linoleate ester that finds particular utility as an internal plasticizers for solid propellant compositions.
