      The goalThe students become acquainted with the advanced aspects of the chemistry of high energy materials. The nature and mechanism of explosive processes is explained, as well as the chemical reactions that lead to them, and also the characteristics of explosive materials, as well as their synthesis and application. ;
      The outcomeThe students should become familiar with the nature and mechanism of explosive processes, chemical reactions that lead to them, and also the characteristics of explosive materials so that they will be able to analyze complex compounds, carry out individual research and plan synthesis.
      Contents of lecturesThe chosen energetic material, their chemical and physical properties, preparation and application. Classification of high energy materials, preparation and modification reactions, as well as the methods for quality determination.
