Summary The book contains ten chapters. Chapter 1 deals with classification of propellants and explosives. Mechanism of thermal decomposition of ammonium perchlorate (AP) has been given in Chapter 2. Synthesis and characterization of various types of nanomaterials such as oxides, ferrites, cobaltites, oxalates, mono, bi and tri metals of transition metals, and oxides of lanthanides have been discussed in Chapter-3. These have been found to be potential thermal decomposition and burning rate catalysts for AP and composite solid propellants. The preparative methods for various types of nanoenergetic com.
