Thermal Decomposition
and Combustion
of Explosives
and Propellants

by G.B. Manelis

This unique book investigates the synthesis, properties and processing of energetic materials and propellant compositions. It provides the thermal decomposition of energetic compounds, such as aliphatic and aromatic nitrocompounds, nitramines, nitroethers, organic azides and difluoroamines, polynitrous heterocycles, and onium salts of different acids, the most important components of modern propellants. It presents the kinetics and mechanisms of chemical reactions for both real and model compounds and examines the classic problem of the dependence of explosive activity on molecular structure.

New methods for a formal kinetic description of decay of condensed substances, the determination of the energy of bond rupture in polyfunctional compounds, and the theory of solid-phase reactions are also given. Applications to problems of predicting the stability, compatibility, and the stabilization of explosives and propellant components are included.

Thermal Decomposition and Combustion of Explosives and Propellants will be of interest to graduate students, researchers and professionals in industry interested in chemical kinetics and the combustion of energetic materials.
