Chemistry of Explosives - 98 edition

Chemistry of Explosives (ISBN10: 0854045635; ISBN13: 9780854045631)
ISBN13: 978-0854045631
ISBN10: 0854045635

Summary: This concise, easy-to-read book outlines the basic principles needed to understand the chemical mechanisms of explosion. Covering detonation, deflagration, initiation, the latest theories on the production of "hotspots", thermochemistry, thermodynamics and kinetics, the text includes detailed formulations and reactions presented with thermochemical calculations to aid understanding. The history, theory and chemical types of explosives are introduced, along
with propellants, pyrotechnics and the most up-to-date information on energetic binders for explosive compositions.

Covering all aspects of explosive chemistry from history to manufacturing techniques and formulation, The Chemistry of Explosives is a unique text which introduces difficult subjects in a readable manner. Ideal for "A" level students and new graduates with no previous knowledge of explosive materials, it will also be useful to anyone needing succinct information on the subject.
