Improved solid performance is needed to meet Integrated High Payoff Rocket Propulsion Technology (IHPRPT) Program goals. Oxidizers more energetic than currently available materials are needed to meet these goals. The objective of this program is to prepare new nitro-substituted heterocyclic oxidizers using a novel synthesis approach. If the method is successful, it can lead to structures that can be used to meet IHPRPT goals.
