Abstract : Accordingly, an object of this invention is to provide new prepolymers and polymers. Another object of this invention is to provide new high energy prepolymers and polymers. A further object of this invention is to provide means of increasing the energy content of binders without sacrificing tensile strength and elongation. Yet another object of this invention is to provide a new method of synthesizing energetic prepolymers and polymers. These and other objects of this invention are achieved by providing a hydroxy-terminated poly(2,2-dinitropropyl) polynitroorthocarbonate prepolymer of the formula: (structural formula).
