Organic Chemistry


Methods are developed for synthesizing (2,2,2-trinitroethoxy)acetic acid (TNEAA) by oxidation of the 2,2,2-trinitroethyl ethers of allylic alcohol or ethylene glycol; among the carboxyl group derivatives obtained were esters from the simplest alcohols and polynitro alcohols, the acid chloride, the amide, and the nitrile.
