Ultrafast Dynamics at the Nanoscale: Biomolecules and Supramolecular Assemblies

Ultrafast Dynamics on the Nanoscale offers a mixed experimental and theoretical perception into the molecular-level research of light-induced quantum strategies in organic platforms and nanostructured (bio)assemblies. subject matters comprise DNA photostability and service, photoactive proteins, organic and synthetic light-harvesting platforms, plasmonic nanostructures, and natural photovoltaic fabrics, whose universal denominator is the most important value of ultrafast quantum results on the border among the molecular scale and the nanoscale.

Sample text

That AN itself possesses explosive character became apparent in a tragic way through disasters involving AN alone in explosions of severe magnitude. The most famous and well-known ones are the accidents in Upper Silesia (1921), Oppau, Germany (1921), Brest, France (1947), Texas City, USA (1947), Toulose, France (2001). A thorough investigation by scientists of its decomposition chemistry, thermochemistry, crystalline behavior, physical properties, heat of formation, and oxygen content produced enormous and satisfying data to enable solutions to be found for problems cropping up in its industrial applications such as physical strength, porosity, caking, release of energy, and sensitivity to initiation.

Modes of thermal decomposition suggested for pure AN are presented in Ref. [3]. 2 Physical and Chemical Properties of Ammonium Nitrate Under confinement detonation occurs as 4NH4 NO3 = 2NO2 + 8H2 O + 3N2 + 27 kcal/mol With just enough fuel added to consume all the available oxygen from AN, the reaction is 3NH4 NO3 + CH2 = 3N2 + 7H2 O + CO2 + 82 kcal/mol There is almost threefold increase in the heat energy released as compared to that where AN rapidly decomposes without the presence of fuel. 3 Phase Transition in AN and its Importance in Explosives AN crystals exist in different forms at different temperatures.

KGaA. 1 Basic Data Literature gives enormous data on the above, but one of the most comprehensive single source is the paper authored by Oommen and Jain [1]. 6 ◦ C. 1). 2 Decomposition Chemistry of AN While pure AN is stable at room temperature, on heating in the open melts at 169 ◦ C, boils at 210 ◦ C, decomposes around 230 ◦ C, and deflagrates at above 325 ◦ C. When confined and heated, AN can explode beyond 260 ◦ C depending on the rate of heating.
