Characterization and Performance Evaluation of Recrystallised Micro PETN

T. Mohan2, P.Vijayadarshan2, J.Venkata Viswanath1, Amarnath Gupta2, N.V. Srinivasarao2 and A. Venkataraman*1,3.

Introduction PETN is one of the high energy materials having oxidizer and fuel in the same molecule1. PETN is used as a secondary explosive. Using a different primary explosive to initiate the secondary has its limitations such as, problems in synthesizing high sensitive primary explosives, heterogeneity etc. PETN is considered to have medium sensitivity towards the impact and electric shock. ...
