Abstract

The impact sensitivity and heat of explosion of an org. explosive are dependent upon its chem. structure.A combination of valences of the elements present in the explosive in the form [(R - P)/RP]MW, where R and P are resp. the total reducing and oxidizing valences and MW is the mol. wt., is related to impact sensitivity expressed as the min. impact height needed for causing explosion. A plausible explanation for the existence of such a relation is provided in terms of the heat of explosion, which is argued to play an important role in detg. the impact sensitivity.
