Title: Infrared properties of three plastic bonded explosive binders

Here, three polymers are routinely used as binders for plastic bonded explosives by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, FK-800, Viton A 100, and Oxy 461. Attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared measurements were performed on 10 different lots of FK-800, 5 different lots of Oxy 461, and 3 different lots of Viton A-100, one sample of Viton VTR 5883 and 2 Fluorel polymers of hexafluoropropene and vinylidene fluoride. The characteristic IR bands were measured. If possible, their vibrational modes were assigned based on literature data. Simple Mopac calculations were used to validate these vibrational mode assignments. Somewhat more sophisticated calculations were run using Gaussian on the same structures.
