Description

Nitrocarbons are good nitrating agents, oxidants, and electron acceptors, and each known nitrocarbon has its own unique and interesting chemistry. Interest in synthesizing both known and new ('unknown') nitrocarbons stems from their value as potential explosive and propellant ingredients. In addition, the new chemistry developed in efforts to synthesize nitrocarbons has led to applications to many other synthetic problems.
