This up-to-date overview provides the latest information on the performance, sensitivity, strength and processability aspects of propellants and explosive formulations, with the nature of polymer binder/plasticizer as the variable factor. Apart from applications, this monograph explores the principles behind energetic polymers, while discussing the synthetic routes and energetic characteristics of individual family of energetic polymers. Furthermore, a number of case studies illustrate the role of energetic polyerms on enhancing the performance of formulations as compared to their inert counterparts. The emphasis is on safety throughout, with practical guidance on how to safely handle and formulate energetic polymer based formulations. With the advent of a new generation of energetic polymers, this book is relevant to industry and defense organizations as well as for academic research.
