Keywords: Energetic binders | PolyBAMO | Copolymer GAP/PolyBAMO | Propellants

The main objective of these studies was the synthesis and characterization of new energetic binders and their use in some propellant formulations. Following the working plan elaborated, the synthesis and characterization of the following compounds has been done successfully:• GAP;• energetic Monomer BAMO;• energetic Binders;• copolymer GAP/PolyBAMO.The scale up for the synthesis of copolymer GAP/PolyBAMO and PolyBAMO using GAP as initiator has been done and they were fully characterized by IR, (¹H, ¹³C) NMR-spectroscopy, GPC, elemental analysis, OH-functionality, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and sensitivity tests (friction, impact). For this two scale up synthesis some propellant formulations were carried out and the results of mechanical and burning properties have been compared with GAP propellants.
