This book will take an in-depth look at the technologies, processes, and capabilities to develop and produce "next generation" energetic materials for both commercial and defense applications, including military, mining operations, oil production and well perforation, and construction demolition. It will serve to highlight the critical technologies, latest developments, and the current capability gaps that serve as barriers to military fielding or transition to the commercial marketplace. It will also explain how the processing technologies can be spun out for use in other non-energetics related industries.

"This book is an excellent collection of current technical strategies in the field of energetic materials. Its writers and editors are leaders in the EM community. The preface provides good background on the current state and need of the field, while each chapter narrates current strides, goals and difficulties."
- Jena McCollum, University of Colorado Colorado Springs, USA
"This book is unique in so far as it does not only describe the synthesis of (new) energetic materials, but also discusses thermodynamic aspects, physical properties and diagnostics of such materials. Another equally important feature that makes this book highly valuable is its inclusion of the discussion of the transition from laboratory scale to industrial production. I am sure this book is going to become a "must" for all researchers in the field of energetic materials - whether they are academic or industrially-based people."
- Thomas M. Klapoetke, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat Munchen, Germany
"This book is set apart from all others in the related field. It meshes a good bit of technical aspects with the program management of how business is done as it related to the energetic materials enterprise."
- Scott Iacono, US Air Force Academy, Chemistry Research Center, USA
"Excellent review. This book should find a place in the shelves of researchers in this area, administrators and law makers involved in funding research in this area."
- Dabir S. Viswanath, University of Missouri, Columbia, Missouri, USA and University of Texas at Austin, USA
"By expertly discussing long-standing grand challenges to EM research, development, and production -in one text- this book serves as a Rosetta Stone; it enables our researchers, managers, and government officials to clearly understand each other's language, constraints, and priorities. The broad reaching scope of this book will help make possible the necessary retooling of administrative and EM manufacturing infrastructures including the introduction of science-based principles into the energetic materials enterprise. In short, Energetic Materials: Advanced Processing Technologies for Next-Generation Materials is an essential business and PLM guidebook for modernizing the energetic materials industry."
- Joseph M. Zaug, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Livermore, California, USA
"This book (290 pages in total) is unique in so far as it does not only describe the synthesis of (new) energetic materials but also discusses thermodynamic aspects, physical properties, and diagnostics of such materials. Another equally important feature that makes this book highly valuable is that it includes a discussion of the transition from laboratory scale to industrial production.
In summary, I am sure this book is going to become a "must" for all researchers in the field of energetic materials - whether they are academic- or industrially-based scientists."
