Around 550 alphabetically ordered, monographic entries consider the physicochemical properties, production methods and safe applications of over 120 explosive chemicals; discuss 70 fuels, additives and oxidizing agents; and describe test methods.
The extensive thermodynamic data have been thoroughly updated. Other key features include: the 1500-entry combined index and glossary (comprising terms and abbreviations in English, French and German), the conversion tables and the many literature references.
This book is suitable for explosive experts and also for indirectly interested parties - such as translators, public authorities and patent lawyers.
From reviews of previous editions:
'This wealth of information and an index that comprises some 1500 keywords and several conversion tables make this a unique source of knowledge for anybody working with explosives.' (Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics)
