Tenny L. Davis first published his two volumes of The Chemistry of Powder and
Explosives in 1941 and 1943, and these were subsequently merged into a single
volume. This useful work gives an overview of energetic materials synthesis in
the early years. During and after the Second World War much research was
pooled into the science of energetic materials, and consequently, the number of
reported organic compounds with explosive properties increased enormously
together ...

However, it is common for primary explosives to be discussed in a chapter or a
paragraph in publications dealing with explosives in general or in a wider picture
(e.g., in T. Urban ́ski's “Chemistry and Technology of Explosives” or David's “The
Chemistry of Powder and Explosives”). Another significant source of information
are the hundreds or thousands of specialized articles in technical periodicals and
papers published in conference publications, which are far too focused on a ...

This indicates a certain porosity of the powder. The pores are filled either with air
or with traces of residual solvent. According to Brunswig [17] 100 g of
nitrocellulose rifle flake powder contains 4-8 cm3 of the air. Nitroglycerine
powder— completely or almost completely wholly colloidal— is less porous,
therefore more difficult to ignite than nitrocellulose powder and requires a
stronger priming. The gravimetric density* of a powder depends upon the
dimensions and shape of the grains.

DEVELOPMENT OF NITROGLYCERINE By the middle of the 19th century the
limitations of blackpowder as a blasting explosive were becoming apparent.
Difficult mining and tunnelling operations required a 'better' explosive. In 1846
the Italian, Professor Ascanio Sobrero discovered liquid nitroglycerine [C3H503(
N02)3]. He soon became aware of the explosive nature of nitroglycerine and
discontinued his investigations. A few years later the Swedish inventor, Immanuel
Nobel ...

Much more than a simple how-to guide, the book discusses chemical and pyrotechnic principles, components of high-energy mixtures, and elements of ignition, propagation, and sensitivity.
