Chemistry of Energetic Materials

Overview

The study of energetic materials is emerging from one primarily directed toward practical interests to an advanced area of fundamental research, where state-of-the-art methods and theory are used side by side with modern synthetic methods.
This timely book integrates the recent experimental, synthetic, and theoretical research of energetic materials. Editors George Olah and David Squire emphasize the importance of structure and mechanism in determining properties and ...

Overview

The study of energetic materials is emerging from one primarily directed toward practical interests to an advanced area of fundamental research, where state-of-the-art methods and theory are used side by side with modern synthetic methods.
This timely book integrates the recent experimental, synthetic, and theoretical research of energetic materials. Editors George Olah and David Squire emphasize the importance of structure and mechanism in determining properties and performances. They also explore new spectrometric methods and synthetic approaches in this useful reference.

Key Features
* Discusses structural analysis by x-ray crystallography
* Explains chemical dynamics by photofragmentation translational spectroscopy
* Covers kinetic analysis by ultrafast absorption and emission spectroscopy
* Details syntheses of polycyclic caged amines, fuel additives, and polynitro compounds
* Examines computer-aided design of monopropellants
* Includes contributions by two Nobel laureates and five members of the National Academy of Sciences

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Energetic materials are those that blow up, like gunpowder and plastic, burn very fast, like rocket fuel, or otherwise provide energy for some activity. Scientists, among them two Nobel laureates, discuss the importance of structure and mechanism in determining a material's properties and performance, emphasizing new spectrometric analysis methods and new synthetic approaches.
