Abstract : This invention relates to organic orthoformates and more particularly to fluoro-,nitro-, and fluoronitro-sub-stituted organic orthoformates. Accordingly, an objective of this invention is to provide novel organic compounds. Another object of this invention is to provide novel organic orthoformates. A further object is to provide new high energy, high density explosives. Yet another object of is to provide a new high energy, high density explosives. A still further object of this invention is to provide new high energy plasticizers. Another object of this invention is to provide a new method of synthesizing novel explosive compounds.
