Expert Reviews

Jules L. Routbort, (Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne, USA)

The application of nanoscale materials and structures, usually ranging from 1 to 100 nm, is an emerging area of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Aluminum Nanoparticles for Explosive show unique properties compared to the bulk metals. Physical and chemical properties of Aluminum (Al) and especially its nanoparticles, are favorable enough to make them applicable in a variety of applications such as alloy powder metallurgy parts for automobiles and air crafts, heat shielding coatings of aircrafts, corrosion, resistant, conductive and heat reflecting paints, conductive and decorative plastics, soldering and termite welding, pyrotechnics and military applications (rocket fuel, igniter, smokes, and tracers). Nanoscale Al particles are also studied as high-capacity hydrogen storage materials.

Aluminum Nanoparticles for Explosive has been added to a range of compositions to increase their performance through raising reaction energies, flame temperatures, and increasing blast rates. Nanoparticles of aluminium are more favourable because of their high enthalpy of combustion and rapid kinetics which increase these reaction properties even further. It is known that nano-sized aluminum particles is a new energetic material with very high reactivity because of large specific surface area, and is expected to be applied to a next generation propellant in the field of aerospace applications. The reactivity of aluminum nanoparticles depends on the particle diameter. It is reported that 30-50nm aluminum nanoparticles are most sensitive.

Dr. Myron Rubenstein, Ph.D, (Polytechnic University of Turin, Italy)

Aluminum Nanoparticles for Explosive is a common ingredient in energetic materials. The aluminum is used to increase the energy and raise the flame temperature in rocket propellants. It is also incorporated in explosives to enhance air blast, increase bubble energies in underwater weapons, raise reaction temperatures and create incendiary effects. In explosives, it is generally assumed that combustion of aluminum particles occurs behind the reaction front (during the expansion of the gaseous detonation products), so that the particles do not participate inthe reaction zone, but rather act as inert ingredient.
