Abstract : This invention generally relates to the preparation and use of tetraazido polyesters. Solid propellants, gun propellants, and explosives are generally composed of oxidizers, binders, plasticizers, and sometimes a fuel. The oxidizers such as ammonium perchlorate and HMX are well known to the art. Hydrocarbon binders and inert plasticizers such as dioctyl phthalate, and triacetin are generally used. Recently, attempts have been made to replace the inert plasticizers with energetic materials so as to increase the overall energy of the propellant.
