Rendering non-energetic microporous coordination polymers explosive

Author affiliations

Abstract

Adsorption of oxidizing guest molecules into a non-energetic microporous coordination polymer produces explosives with desirable oxygen balance, high heat released upon decomposition, and suppressed vapor pressure of the guest. Here, this results in primary explosives, materials very sensitive to impact, that have the potential to be used as replacements for lead-based initiators.
