43rd International Annual Conference, June 26-29, 2012 Congress Center Karlsruhe, Germany
Synthesis, Characterisation, Processing
New energetic materials for ammunition, propellants and pyrotechnics must meet a variety of requirements, some of which may be contradictory. Requirements relate primarily to the performance, but insensitivity, stability and vulnerability also play an important role. Research is therefore focussed on new, nitrogenrich compounds as well as heterocycles, nanoscale components and energetic ionic liquids. Especially where nanoscale components are concerned, new processing approaches are important for product development. The development of new, energy-rich materials may lead to new, innovative applications, and the improvement of existing products.
The 43rd International Annual Conference of the ICT would therefore welcome contributions relating to new energetic ingredients, energetic solids and binders, formulations, processing techniques and comprehensive characterisation of rocket and gun propellants, high explosives and pyrotechnics.
The 43rd International Annual Conference of the ICT will act as a forum for reviewing the state of the art of new energetic materials in the fields of synthesis, characterisation and processing. The conference will also provide a platform to present new ideas and to stimulate the scientific discussion process, opening up new scientific perspectives in the field of energetic materials.
