Search Title, ISBN and Author. By Jai Prakash Agrawal, Robert Dale Hodgson. Explosives have attracted some unwanted publicity over the years for their misuse in the taking of life and the destruction of property. 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? Explosives are in fact no more than tools and remain as some of the most fascinating products of chemistry. "Organic Chemistry of Explosives" is the first text which brings together in one volume the essential methods and routes used for the synthesis of organic explosives.Topics are organised based on the fact that explosive properties are imparted into a compound by the presence of certain functional groups, and include: the methods which can be used to introduce "C"-nitro, "O"-nitro, and "N"-nitro functionality into organic compounds the synthesis of energetic compounds in the form of polynitropolycycloalkanes, caged and strained nitramines, and "N"-heterocycles the synthesis of explosives containing functionality less widely encountered, including: organic azides, peroxides, diazophenols, and energetic compounds derived from guanidine and its derivatives nitration with dinitrogen pentoxide and its likely significance for the future synthesis of energetic materials. This book also highlights important properties such as melting points, impact sensitivities and velocities of detonation etc. Which are considered valuable from the end-use point of view. "Organic Chemistry of Explosives" is an essential reference source for chemists working in thefield of energetic materials and all those with an interest in the chemistry of nitramines, nitro compounds, nitrate esters, and nitration in general. "Organic Chemistry of Explosives" is the first text to bring together the essential methods and routes used for the synthesis of organic explosives in a single volume. Assuming no prior knowledge, the book discusses everything from the simplest mixed acid nitration of toluene, to the complex synthesis of highly energetic caged nitro compounds. Reviews laboratory and industrial methods, which can be used to introduce aliphatic C-nitro, aromatic C-nitro, N-nitro, and nitrate ester functionality into organic compounds Discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each synthetic method or route, with scope, limitations, substrate compatibility and other important considerations Features numerous examples in the form of text, reaction diagrams, and tables.
