PREFACE
The frequent curiosity in explosives in the course of and because global warfare II has resulted
in the necessity for a accomplished insurance of the sector of explosives and related
items. In 1941-1944, Dr B. T. Fedoroff in collaboration with G. D. Clift had
published a "Laboratory handbook of Explosives" in 4 small volumes (Lefax Co),
for which there have been a number of requests. because the revealed versions have been exhausted and the plates have been now not on hand, Dr Fedoroff determined to jot down a
revised variation. because the paintings improved, it turned obvious that extra help
would be wanted, not just as a result super enlargement of the literature,
but additionally since it used to be made up our minds to increase the scope of the work

This Encyclopedia is meant to hide the next goods:
a) army and business explosives, explosive compositions, propellants and pyrotechnic compositions

The authors wish that this Encyclopedia should be of price not just in saving
many hours of library paintings but in addition in lowering the necessity for far laboratory work
in order to procure details already to be had. it's was hoping that a few of the data
and even loss of facts may perhaps stimulate extra paintings within the fields covered

cooperation of such a lot of participants directory will be impractical. Any attempt
to accomplish that may definitely lead to a few embarrassing omissions. We therefore
