Abstract:

Data on the properties and m thods of production of high explosives is systematically presented in book form. T theoretical principles of the production processes are examined,AND THE STATES OF THE HIGH-EXPLOSIVES INDUSTRY ABROAD IS DESCRIBED ON THE BASIS OF LITERATURE DATA. The book consists of 3 parts embracing the 3 most important classes of explosives 1 nitro compounds 2 nitroamines and 3 nitric esters. In the first chapter of each part, the general properties of the explosives of the given class are illuminated, as are the theoretical fundamentals of the process by which they are produced. A description is then given of the chemistry and technologyous conditions as well as the nitration process flow, and the acid equipment of the high-explosives plant.
