Abstract

Explosives, particularly nitro explosives, are synthesized globally and are high energy materials, consisting of elements like carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen. When subjected to any stimuli, they can undergo a very rapid, self-propagating, and exothermic decomposition reactions, resulting in the formation of more stable materials like CO2, H2O, and N2 with the development of sudden high pressure.
