Abstract

High-pressure studies of energetic materials provide valuable information about how these compounds behave under the extreme conditions experienced during detonation. Spectroscopic and diffraction techniques, augmented by computational methods, provide insight into the effects of pressure on intermolecular interactions and phase transitions. Some examples of studies on representative compounds are presented here.
