Energetic materials have been widely used in aerospace, the military and many other fields. In addition to the typical CHNO explosives and propellants, novel energetic materials such as energetic polymers and nano-scale composite energetic materials show unique features, improved properties and high performance. The discovery of such novel energetic materials through innovative synthesis and processing, as well as comprehensive materials characterisation, provides an understanding of the properties and performance that enables promising ideas to become practical applications. Theoretical analysis approaches such as quantum chemistry and molecular dynamics calculations can also provide insights into the structure and property relationships and reaction mechanisms. In addition, the development of machine learning approaches has provided the possibility to select or predict promising energetic materials in a highly efficient way.
The goal of this virtual special issue is to feature novel insights and techniques in energetic materials. Submissions are particularly encouraged on emerging theories and technologies in the design and application of energetic materials.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Synthesis and properties of novel energetic polymers
- Preparation and characterisation of advanced composite energetic materials
- Machine learning approaches for selecting and predicting energetic materials
- Quantum chemistry and molecular dynamics studies on energetic materials
