Millar, David I. A. and Maynard-Casely, Helen E. and Allan, David R. and Cumming, Adam S. and Lennie, Alistair R. and Mackay, Alexandra J. and Oswald, Iain D. H. and Tang, Chiu C. and Pulham, Colin R. (2012) Crystal engineering of energetic materials: Co-crystals of CL-20. CrystEngComm, 14 (10). pp. 3742-3749. ISSN 1466-8033

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.
