Sundararajan, R and Jain, Sampat R (1983) Structure and impact sensitivity relation in organic explosives. In: Indian Journal of Technology, 21 (11). pp. 474-477.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
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.
