The objective of this research is to develop new methods for the functionalization of the cubane nucleus and to synthesize energetic cubanes for use as energetic propellants and explosives. Recent achievements in this program include a high yield synthesis of dinitrocubane, a new preparation of cubane-1,3-diacid, and synthesises of cubane-1,2,4,7- tetraacid, cubane-1,2,4,7-tetraisocyanate, 1,2,4,7-tetraaminocubane tetrahydrochloride, and a propellanocubane. We have developed new methods of cubane functionalization, and the first preparation of energetic polynitrocubanes; cubane-1,2,4,7-tetrakis(B,B,B-fluorodinitroethylester), cubane-1,4-bis(B,B,B-trinitroethylester), cubane-1,2,4,7- tetrakis(B,B,B-trinitroethylester), N,M-bis-1,4-(B,B,13-fluorodinitroethylamino)cubane, and N-nitro-N'-nitroso-bis-1,4-(B,B,B-fluorodinitroethylamino)cubane.
