Determining the Polymorphic Purity of e-CL20 Contaminated by Other Polymorphs through the Use of FTIR Spectroscopy with PLS Regression

Abstract : CL20 (HNIW=hexanitrohexaazaisowurtzitane), is an energetic molecule that presents four polymorphs (called alpha (a-), beta (beta-), gamma (?-), and epsilon (e-)). The e form is the one used in propellant formulations (the rocket combustive agent). On the one hand, a method developed to measure the purity of this form should be the most reliable one. On the other hand, the amount of impurities alpha (a-), beta (beta-), gamma (?-), and of the monoacetylatedpentanitrated compound (PN) should be taken into account in order to assess the influence of the impurities on this propellant. The aim of this work is to develop a quantitative analytical method to measure the polymorphic composition of CL20 using FTIR-MIR spectroscopy and PLS regression.
