Abstract : Nitrato alkyl oxetanes are synthesized directly from the corresponding hydroxy alkyl oxetanes by nitrating the hydroxy alkyl oxetane under non-acidic anhydrous conditions. A hydroxy alkyl oxetane is reacted with an anhydrous nitrate ester of a carboxylic acid at temperatures below about 10 deg C. The product of the method, nitrato alkyl oxetane, is produced in relatively high yield without opening of the oxetane ring.
