Special Issue "Co-Crystals and Polymorphic Transition in Energetic Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 January 2024 | Viewed by 3711
Interests: polymorphic transition inhibition; energetic co-crystals
An energetic material’s crystal phases, structure and morphology determine its sensitivity, stability and mechanical properties as well as energetic performance. In recent years, with the development of theoretical calculation and experimental characterization techniques, the in-depth relationship between crystals and their properties has been extensively studied. Co-crystals are fabricated to modify the safety and detonation performances of energetic materials. Inhibition of the polymorphic transition during manufacture and storage has drawn significant attention due to its influence on the stability of energetic composites. Furthermore, the crystal spheroidization of energetic compounds is practically a prerequisite for ideal insensitivity and manufacturability. Crystal engineering occupies an increasingly important role in energetic material applications with emerging practical technology such as resonance acoustic mixing, seed crystal induction and so on.
The present Special Issue, entitled Co-Crystals and Polymorphic Transition in Energetic Materials, aims to examine recent breakthroughs in this burgeoning research field, covering a wide range of topics, including but not limited to:
- Polymorphism, transition and their influence on energetic materials;
- Preparation, calculation and characterization of energetic co-crystals;
- Crystal spheroidization of energetic compounds;
- Relationship between crystal structure and energetic properties;
- Simulation and prediction of energetic crystals.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Crystals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
