Studies on the high-energy gun propellant formulations based on 1,5-diazido-3-nitrazapentane


, : Studies on the high-energy gun propellant formulations based on 1,5-diazido-3-nitrazapentane. Journal of Hazardous Materials 172(2-3): 1699-1702

This paper discusses the enhancement of ballistic performance of RDX-based high-energy gun propellants by incorporation of the energetic plasticizer 1,5-diazido-3-nitrazapentane into the propellant composition. Compositions containing 1,5-diazido-3-nitrazapentane with varying percentage of cyclotrimethylenetrinitramine and nitrocellulose have been studied theoretically and experimentally. Performance in terms of ballistic parameters, sensitivity, thermal characteristics, stability and mechanical properties were evaluated and compared with those of compositions containing non-energetic plasticizer di-octyl-phthalate. Experimental data on comparative study indicates that propellants containing 1,5-diazido-3-nitrazapentane are superior to propellants containing di-octyl-phthalate in respect of ballistic performance and mechanical properties.

PTEN, a protein tyrosine phosphatase with homology to tensin, is a tumor-suppressor gene on chromosome 10q23. Somatic mutations in PTEN occur in multiple tumors, most markedly glioblastomas. Germ-line mutations in PTEN are responsible for Cowden d...

A soil oxygen simulation model (OXSI) was tested and evaluated for evaluating growing media with respect to aeration. In the model, local oxygen concentrations are calculated from coefficients of diffusion and consumption (respiration), assuming e...
