Abstract : Accordingly, an object of this invention is to provide new polymers. Another object of this invention is to provide new high energy polymers. A further object of this invention is to provide polymers having a high concentration of stable, high energy 2-fluoro- 2,2-dinitroethyl groups. Yet another object of this invention is to provide means of increasing the energy content of binders without sacrificing tensile strength and elongation. A still further object of this invention is to provide a new method of synthesizing energetic polymers. These and other objects of this invention a achieved by providing hydroxy-terminated poly(2-fluoro-2,2-dinitroethyl) polynitroorthocarbonates prepolymers.
