Abstract : This invention relates to organic explosives and more particularly to fluoronitroorganic explosives. A previous method for the preparation of N,N-bis(2-fluoro-2,2-dinitroethyl)carbamyl chloride (1) has been reported by W. H. Gilligan and M. J. Kamlet in U.S. Pat. No. 3,850,978, which issued on Nov. 26, 1974. Accordingly, an object of this is to provide an improved method of producing N,N-bis(2-fluoro-2,2-dinitroethyl)carbamyl chloride. Another object of this invention is to provide a method of obtaining pure N,N-bis(2-fluoro-2,2-dinitroethyl)carbamyl chloride. A further object of this invention is to provide new, more powerful explosive compounds having good thermal and chemical stabilities. Yet another object of this invention is to provide novel compounds which are useful in high energy explosives.
