Nitrosucrose nitration length

Say I had 40g of sucrose nitrated once, so, some blend of various nitrates of sucrose (mono, di, tri, etc). It hasn't been removed from the nitration bath yet. Would it be more beneficial to leave the nitration run longer, or repeat it a few times? I've had better luck with NC running longer than shorter multiple nitrations, but I've attributed that to the better ability it has to work it's way into the fibrous material, which wouldn't be an issue with sucrose.

Additionally, I've read the thread here on the topic, and looked around and can't find a VoD for Nitrosucrose. Has anyone here experimented with it beyond the synthesis? How sensitive is it? Perhaps blend with AN instead of nitrostarch?

You can remove the lower nitrated products by recrystalisation with acetone. Also,it will get oxidised by the HNO3 and give lower yields.Try to look for infos on Pubchem or somthing.

You could look in the library.

Rapopart’s Rules for critical commentary:

1. Attempt to re-express your target’s position so clearly, vividly and fairly that your target says: “Thanks, I wish I’d thought of putting it that way.”
2. List any points of agreement (especially if they are not matters of general or widespread agreement).
3. Mention anything you have learned from your target.
4. Only then are you permitted to say so much as a word of rebuttal or criticism.

Anatol Rapoport was a Russian-born American mathematical psychologist (1911-2007).
