Title

Synthetic Methods for High-Energy Organofluorine Compounds

Abstract

It is now well recognized that introduction of fluorine into high-energy materials improves their safety performance and substantially increases their densities. Most of the current focus in this area is targeted at the synthesis of difluoramine-derived high-energy compounds and pentafluorosulfanyl- and trifluoromethyl-substituted versions of the high-energy materials. Often, the fluorinated high-energy 4compounds have relatively diminished shock sensitivities as compared to their nonfluorinated analogs, and have relatively high-energy densities, which translates into their higher detonation pressures and detonation velocities. For example, some of the pentafluorosulfanyl- and difluoramine-derived heterocyclic compounds exhibit substantially higher densities and show other favorable high-energy properties, such as high detonation speed and detonation pressure, and are useful as high-energetic materials (vide infra).
