Organic Chemistry of Explosives (Free PDF)

Explosives have attracted a lot of unwanted publicity over the years for their misuse in the taking of life and the destruction of property. Explosives are perceived by most as materials of fear and at no time is this more prevalent than in times of war. Although such concerns and views are not unfounded, there is a bigger picture. More explosives have been used in times of peace than in all of the wars and conflicts put together. How many of the great engineering achievements would have been possible if not for the intervention of explosives? Blasting and quarrying have allowed the construction of our transport links, supplied the rock and raw materials for our buildings, and enabled the extensive mining of minerals and other essential materials. Explosives are in fact no more than a tool and remain as some of the most fascinating products of chemistry.

Much of the information concerning the synthesis of organic explosives, and energetic materials in general, can be found in the form of papers and reviews in academic chemistry journals. The Journal of Energetic Materials (USA); Propellants, Explosives, Pyrotechnics (Germany); Combustion, Explosion and Shockwaves (Russia) and Explosives Engineering (UK) are specialized journals for reporting the recent advances in the synthesis and technology of energetic materials. The mainstream organic chemistry journals occasionally report on the synthesis of energetic materials if that work has a general significance to organic chemistry. Chemical Abstracts is an invaluable and up to date source of information on patents and publications relating to advances in energetic materials chemistry and technology. Further, there are some national/international societies/associations in this field and their main task is to organize annual conferences/seminars, which provide a forum to scientists, engineers, technologists and academicians working in this area to exchange information on the latest developments.
