Organic Chemistry of Explosives is the first text tobring together the essential methods and routes used for thesynthesis of organic explosives in a single volume.

Assuming no prior knowledge, the book discusses everything fromthe simplest mixed acid nitration of toluene, to the complexsynthesis of highly energetic caged nitro compounds.

  • Reviews laboratory and industrial methods, which can be used tointroduce aliphatic C-nitro, aromatic C-nitro, N-nitro, and nitrateester functionality into organic compounds
  • Discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each syntheticmethod or route, with scope, limitations, substrate compatibilityand other important considerations
  • Features numerous examples in the form of text, reactiondiagrams, and tables.
