Preparation and study of thin RDX films standards on various substrates deposited by spin coating technology
The highly energetic material (HEM) hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-s-triazine, also known as RDX, has two stable conformational polymorphs at room temperature: α-RDX (molecular conformation of –NO2 groups: axial-axial-equatorial) ...
Cyclic organic peroxides identification and trace analysis by Raman microscopy and open-air chemical ionization mass spectrometry
The persistent use of cyclic organic peroxides in explosive devices has increased the interest in study these compounds. Development of methodologies for the detection of triacetone triperoxide (TATP) and hexamethylene ...
Standoff laser-Induced thermal emission of explosives
A laser mediated methodology for remote thermal excitation of analytes followed by standoff infrared (IR) detection is proposed. The goal of this study was to determine the feasibility of using laser induced thermal emission ...
Modeling of TNT transport from landmines
The transport of Explosive Related Compounds (ERCs) has been studied as part of a research program aiming to the development of chemical sensors for detecting landmines. TNT and its degradation products typically make up ...
Theoretical and experimental vibrational and NMR studies of α and β-RDX
Cyclic nitramine hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-s-triazine (RDX), is an important energetic ingredient for propellants and explosives. To understand RDX explosive nature, the molecular structure needs to be examined in detail. ...
