Abstract : The present invention provides a method for synthesizing a novel oxether-1 monomer by a two step reaction scheme which involves effecting a reaction between 3-methyl-3-hydroxymethyl oxetane and 1,1,1-trinitroethane to form an intermediate reaction product which in turn is reacted with methyl iodide to produce the oxether-1 monomer. The monomer is easily polymerized using conventional polymerization techniques to produce a poly(oxether-1) polyol useful as a binder component in smokeless propellants and explosives.
