Abstract : Accordingly, an object of this investigation is to provide new energetic polymers for use in propellant and explosive binders. Another object of this invention is to provide new energetic polymers that are more stable to heat and light. A further object of this invention is to provide new stable energetic polymers that are less expensive to produce. These and other objects of this invention are achieved by producing: a dihydroxy-terminated copolyformal formed from (A) formaldehyde and (B) a diol comonomer mixture of a nitraminediol.
