Energetic Nanomaterials: Synthesis, Characterization, and Application provides researchers in academia and industry the most novel and meaningful knowledge on nanoenergetic materials, covering the fundamental chemical aspects from synthesis to application.
This valuable resource fills the current gap in book publications on nanoenergetics, the energetic nanomaterials that are applied in explosives, gun and rocket propellants, and pyrotechnic devices, which are expected to yield improved properties, such as a lower vulnerability towards shock initiation, enhanced blast, and environmentally friendly replacements of currently used materials.
The current lack of a systematic and easily available book in this field has resulted in an underestimation of the input of nanoenergetic materials to modern technologies. This book is an indispensable resource for researchers in academia, industry, and research institutes dealing with the production and characterization of energetic materials all over the world.
- Written by high-level experts in the field of nanoenergetics
- Covers the hot topic of energetic nanomaterials, including nanometals and their applications in nanoexplosives

Prof. Dr. Vladimir E. Zarko is Head of the Condensed Systems Combustions Laboratory of the Institute of Chemical Kinetics and Combustion, the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. He graduated from Tomsk State University and obtained a PhD in 1971 and a DSc in 1985 from the Institute of Hydrodynamics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Novosibirsk. He became a professor at Novosibirsk Technical Institute in 1989. His scientific activity has focused on the processes of ignition and transient combustion of the condensed systems. Results of his research have been generalized in the monograph Ignition of Solids, co-authored with Prof. V.N. Vilyunov, Elsevier, 1989. He has since published several books and more than 170 papers in peer reviewed journals, and he has been issued 11 patents. He has served as Associate Editor of the journal Combustion, Explosion, and Shock Waves in Novosibirsk for many years, and he serves on the advisory board of two international journals. Since 2000 he has served as President of the Novosibirsk Division of the Russian Federation of Cosmonautics. Prof. Zarko has traveled to institutions all over the world as a researcher and lecturer. At present his scientific interests are focused on energetic nanomaterials and initiation of high explosives by laser and electron beam pulsed irradiation.
