Density of sorbitol hexanitrate vs mannitol hexanitrate


Does someone here have density datas over SHN vs MHN...being isomers of each other their explosive properties must be very close and following me only the density can give an advantage of one on the other...VOD is indeed density related and must increase by +/-450 m/s by every increase of 0.1 g/ccm...

So which is the fastest at max density? SHN of MHN?

You're not?, I hope, thinking of casting MHN. . .
I don't have those densities, but nitrodulcite, also isomeric with MHN is a solid m.p.~ 95*C, so it might be castable.
AFAIK, viscous liquids have somewhat lower VoDs than more mobile liquids. . .
Not sure how this relates to solids, though!
Davis gives the VoD of MHN as 8260 m/s at a density of 1.73, though this may not be its maximum.
Any differences would, I imagine, be slight. . .

MHN solid - 1,80(TMD), 1,73 , cast - 1,604 and 1,595
SHN 1.58 (solid? cast?)

Usually the increase of VoD is 300-350 m/s for 0.1 g/ccm

SHN, according to Davis, is an uncrystallisable viscous liquid, whereas DHN (dulcitol hexanitrate) is a (relatively) low-melting solid.
Acronyms abound. . .
