Biocatalytic synthesis of energetic ingredients and nitration and polymerization reactions in supercritical fluid CO2 are new technologies that reduce the amount of toxic materials treated, disposed and otherwise released into the environment in energetic materials manufacturing. These new technologies were studied under the SERDP “Green Energetics" program. This report describes the results of peroxidase calalyzed synthesis of energetics, and a series of studies using supercritical fluid as a reaction media in the synthesis of energetic materials.
