The present volume contains in one binding the whole contents of Volume I, first published in May, 1941, and the whole contents of Volume II which was published in March, 1943. The book was primarily for chemists. The writing of it was commenced in order that a textbook might be available for the use of students in the course in powder and explosives which the author gave for about twenty years (nearly every year since the first World War) to fourth-year and graduate students of chemistry and of chemical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.[...] The aim of the book has been to describe as clearly and interestingly as possible, and as fully as seemed profitable the modes of behavior, both physical and chemical, of explosive substances, whether these modes find practical application or not. Historical material has been included where it was thought that it contributed to this end, and has not been included elsewhere or for any other reason. It is a fact that a knowledge of the history of ideas, of persons, or of things produces something of the same sympathetic understanding of them that living with them and working with them does.-Print ed.

Black powder, the world's first chemical explosive, was originally developed during the Tang dynasty in China.It was a crude mixture at first, but over time chemists discovered the optimum proportion of sulfur, charcoal, and nitrates, as well as the best way to mix them for a complete and powerful reaction. Author and chemistry buff Simon Quellen Field takes readers on a decades-long journey through the history of things that go boom, from the early days of black powder to today's modern plastic explosives. Not just the who, when, and why, but also the how. How did Chinese alchemists come to create black powder? What accidents led to the discovery of high explosives? How do explosives actually work on a molecular scale? Boom! The Chemistry and History of Explosives reviews the original papers and patents written by the chemists who invented them, to shed light on their development, to explore the consequences of their use for good and ill, and to give the reader a basic understanding of the chemistry that makes them possible.

Some 600 pipe bomb explosions have occurred annually in the United States during the past several years. How can technology help protect the public from these homemade devices? This book, a response to a Congressional mandate, focuses on ways to improve public safety by preventing bombings involving smokeless or black powders and apprehending the makers of the explosive devices. It examines technologies used for detection of explosive devices before they explode--including the possible addition of marking agents to the powders--and technologies used in criminal investigations for identification of these powders--including the possible addition of taggants to the powders--in the context of current technical capabilities. The book offers general conclusions and recommendations about the detection of devices containing smokeless and black powders and the feasibility of identifying makers of the devices from recovered powder or residue. It also makes specific recommendations about marking and tagging technologies. This volume follows the work reported in Containing the Threat from Illegal Bombings (NRC 1998), which studied similar issues for bombings that utilize high explosives.

Aus Rezensionen voriger Auflagen: Die zehnte Auflage dieses Nachschlagewerkes ist erneut erweitert und aktualisiert worden, das bewährte Konzept wurde beibehalten. Der Textteil beschreibt ausführlich mehr als 550 Begriffe in alphabetischer Reihenfolge, darunter über 120 mit Strukturformel und Daten versehene chemische Verbindungen mit Explosivcharakter. Zu fast jeder Verbindung werden die wichtigsten chemisch-physikalischen und sicherheitstechnischen Kenndaten aufgeführt; die Gefahrgutregularien wurden gründlich überarbeitet. Der Leser findet außerdem Angaben zu den Herstellungsverfahren und Verwendungsmöglichkeiten dieser Stoffe sowie zu etwa 70 Additiven, Brennstoffen und Oxidantien. Etwa 1500 Einträge im Schlagwortregister, die Angabe der englischen und französischen Übersetzungen und die Erklärung von Kurzbezeichnungen machen dieses Buch zu einem umfassenden und aktuellen Lexikon. Es eignet sich für Fachleute, die in irgendeiner Form mit Explosivstoffen zu tun haben, aber auch für Interessenten, wie Übersetzer, Behörden und Patentanwälte. ' Ein Buch, das in mehr als 60 Jahren 8 Auflagen erlebt hat, bedarf keiner besonderen Empfehlung...' Archiv für Kriminologie

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.

Dieses Buch erhebt nicht den Anspruch, besser in die Chemie einzuführen, als dies andere, vorab die ausgezeichneten Lehrbücher der allgemeinen Chemie von G. SCHWARZENBACH oder L. PAULING tun. Das ·Wesentliche unserer "Chemie des Ingenieurs" liegt vielmehr darin, daß ihr Autor zusammen mit den Lesern, die er sich wünscht, die Chemie bewußt, oft gar eigenwillig vom Standpunkt des Inge nieurs aus betrachten will, deshalb aus der Gesamtheit der Stoffe und der Fülle der Erscheinungen mit Entschiedenheit jene herausgreifend, welche den Ingenieur selber betreffen und unmittelbar angehen. Unter technischen Gesichtspunkten zu einem Ganzen geordnet, soll sich daraus eine Lehre der Stoffe und chemischen Reaktionen ergeben, welche eindrücklicher als bisher die Bedeutung der Chemie, wesentliche Hilfswissenschaft des Ingenieurs zu sein, aufzuzeigen und das Interesse von Ingenieuren jeder Richtung an Fragen der Chemie zu wecken vermag. Werden dabei auf der einen Seite beim Leser Kenntnisse der elementaren Chemie voraus gesetzt, so sollte umgekehrt über eine gedrängte, häufig bloß skizzenhafte Dar stellung nicht hinausgegangen und vom Hilfsmittel tabellarischer Ubersichten reichlich Gebrauch gemacht werden. Einzelnen Abschnitten beigefügte Lite raturhinweise möchten zugleich zum vertieften Studium des einzelnen Gegen 'Standes die erwünschte Anleitung geben. Bei der Bearbeitung der Aufgabe, die sich der Verfasser gestellt, kam ihm naturgemäß sehr zu Hilfe, was ihm der Chemieunterricht an die Ingenieure der Eidgenössischen Technischen Hochschule wie die Anwendung der chemischen Wissenschaften auf das Gesamtgebiet der Materialprüfung und Werkstoffkunde ständig an neuen Erfahrungen vermitteln.

This world-famous reference work has been enlarged and updated without tampering with its tried and tested format. Around 500 alphabetically ordered, monographic entries consider the physicochemical properties, production methods and safe applications of over 120 explosive chemicals; discuss 70 fuels, additives and oxidizing agents; and describe test methods. The extensive thermodynamic data have been thoroughly updated and for the first time are also provided in electronic format. The included CD-ROM was compiled by the Fraunhofer Institute of Chemical Technology (Pfinztal, Germany) and represents an excerpt from the ICT Thermodynamical Database. Not only additional thermodynamic data, and references to further reading, but also enhanced search facilities are provided. Other key features include: the 1500-entry combined index and glossary (comprising terms and abbreviations in English, French and German), conversion tables and many literature references. This book is suitable for explosive experts and also for translators, public authorities and patent lawyers. From reviews of previous editions: '... This wealth of information and an index that comprises some 1500 keywords and several conversion tables make this a unique source of knowledge for anybody working with explosives.'
