Abstract

Co-crystallisation is proposed as an effective method to adapt the physico-chemical properties of energetic materials, thus presenting the opportunity to fine-tune performance characteristics at the molecular level. This is illustrated by the characterisation of four co-crystals of the high explosive CL-20.
