Abstract

With the recent availability of erythritol as an artificial sweetener, the synthesis of erythritol tetranitrate (ETN) has become economically feasible. This paper examines the eutectics of ETN, to see if it can be a useful component in melt-casted explosive formulations. To this end, we report several novel ETN-energetic eutectics, correct ratios, and melt-temperature for a previously reported eutectic, and we examine a new eutectic composed of insensitive explosives.
