Paper Abstract

Nine diesters of cubane 1,4-dicarboxylic acid were synthesized and evaluated as advanced propellant plasticizers. Three energetic cubyl ammonium salts of amino and 1,4-diamino cubane were synthesized as models for more highly substituted cubyl ammonium salt oxidizers. Methyl carbamates of amino cubanes have been successfully nitrated with 100% HNO3/(CH3C0)20. These nitrated carbamates are precursors to unsubstituted nitramino cubanes.
