From the preface:

"...This book fills a void in the collection of pyrotechnic literature...it will make an excellent reference book that all researchers of pyrolants and energetics must have..."
Dr. Bernard E. Douda, Dr. Sara Pliskin, NAVSEA Crane, IN, USA

This exciting book details all aspects of this important class of energetic materials. It illustrates the progress that has been made in the field and covers both the chemistry and applications.

The text opens with an historical overview followed by a thorough discussion of ignition, combustion and radiative properties. The next section explores the multifaceted military and civilian applications, as well as production and synthetic techniques. The critical importance of associated hazards, namely sensitivity, stability and ageing, are discussed in detail, and the whole is rounded off by a look at the future of this important and expanding field.

Key features:

  • Describes historical development, recent achievements and shows the way ahead for these most versatile energetic materials
  • Discusses associated hazards and their origin, and details occupational health and properties
  • Acts as complete guide to the chemistry, applications, manufacture and hazards of metal-fluorocarbon based pyrolants
  • Authored by a pre-eminent authority on the subject from the NATO Munitions Safety Information Analysis Center (MSIAC)

Keywords: Explosives and Propellants, pyrolants, pyrolants ignition chemistry, pyrolants combustion chemistry, pyrolants radiative properties, explosives, propellants, rocket motor igniters, carbide materials
