a b s t r a c tAmmonium nitrate (AN)-based propellant is plagued by several drawbacks: low burning rate, poor ignitability, and low energy. The application of an energetic binder is an effective approach to the practical use of AN-based propellants but has not been used to date because the synthesis processes are complicated and expensive. Polytetrahydrofuran (PTHF) is a raw material for rubber products and is not an energetic material. The repeating unit of PTHF has one oxygen atom, and although PTHF could n…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
