The Properties of Energetic Materials
Sensitivity, Physical and Thermodynamic Properties
Series:De Gruyter Textbook
Reliable approaches for the prediction of sensitivity, physical and thermodynamic properties of energetic materials
Provides essential methods to assess energetic materials for successful synthesis
Aims and Scope
Organic energetic materials contain meta-stable molecules capable of undergoing very rapid and highly exothermic reactions. Many methods have been developed to estimate the sensitivity of an energetic compound with respect to external stimuli causing detonation such as heat, friction, impact, shock and electrostatic charges. This book introduces these methods and demonstrates those methods which can be easily applied by users.
