    ABSTRACT: Triazolyl-functionalized monocationic energetic salts (2a−m) were prepared through reactions of 1-(chloromethyl)-1H-1,2,4-triazole with 1-methylimidazole, 1-methyl-1,2,4-triazole, or 4-amino-4H-1,2,4-triazole in the presence of NaI, followed by metathetical reactions with equivalent silver salts. Subsequent protonation with corresponding acids gave rise to triazolium-functionalized diquaternary salts (3a−c). Direct treatment of neutral 1-(1H-imidazole-1-yl)methylene-1H-1,2,4-triazole, which was prepared by reaction of 1-(chloromethyl)-1H-1,2,4-triazole with imidazole in the presence of a base, with acids in methanol or metathesis with silver salts after quaternization with methyl iodide gave rise to the corresponding diquaternary energetic salts 5a−c and 7a−d, respectively. All of the energetic salts were characterized by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and density determinations. The majority of them exhibit good thermal stability and relatively high density. The synergistic effect of two energetic rings in cations and the effect of anions on their preparation and physicochemical properties were examined and are discussed. The densities, standard enthalpies of formation, detonation pressures, detonation velocities, and specific impulse values for the unsymmetric dicationic energetic salts were calculated.

    ABSTRACT: Some europium(III) and gadolinium(III) complexes viz., [Eu(phen)2Cl3CH3OH] (1), [Gd(phen)2(NO3)3] (6), [Ln(2,6-DNP)3(phen)CH3OH] (2,7), [Ln(2,6-DNP)3(phen)(OH)]�Hphen (3,8), [Ln(2,6-DNP)3(bipy)OH2] (4,9), [Ln(2,6-DNP)3(bipy)(OH)].Hbipy (5,10) (Ln = Eu, Gd; 2,6-DNP = 2,6-dinitrophenol; phen = 1,10-phenanthroline; bipy = 2,20-bipyridine), have been synthesized and characterized by different physicochemical methods including single crystal X-ray crystallography. Their thermal properties have been studied by thermogravimetric analysis (TG) and demonstrated that the final product after decomposition was stable oxide (Ln2O3) for all these complexes. Isothermal thermogravimetric study in the range of 410–450 �C for 1–5 and 270–310 �C for 6–10 has been done for all the complexes while the kinetics of thermal decomposition was evaluated by applying model fitting as well as an isoconversional methods. To investigate the response of these complexes under the condition of rapid heating, ignition delay (Di) has been measured. The possible pathways of thermolysis for these complexes have also been proposed.

    ABSTRACT: The effect of 5-nitro-2,4-dihydro-3H-1,2,4-triazole-3-one (NTO) and two of its transition metal salts, namely Cu(NTO)2 and Fe(NTO)3, during the combustion of composite solid propellants (CSPs) of hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB) and ammonium perchlorate (AP) has been studied. The activities of Cu(NTO)2 and Fe(NTO)3 have been compared with those of CuO and Fe2O3 at their equivalent metal concentrations. The processing parameters and mechanical properties of the propellants were also evaluated using Cu(NTO)2 and Fe(NTO)3 as additives, and a comparison has been made with that of copper chromite (CC) and active iron oxide (AIO) at pilot plant scale. The safety aspects of using these energetic salts as burning-rate modifiers have been studied in terms of the impact-sensitivity of the modified propellants. An attempt has been made to evaluate experimentally the condensed phase activity of these additives during the slow thermolysis of propellants, as well as AP. Rapid thermolysis of the propellants and AP has been studied using measurements of ignition delay.
