Abstract
ABSTRACT: Oceanit proposes to develop a wet chemical synthesis approach for core-shell energetic nanoparticles which will have high air and moisture stability, energy density and burn rate compared to current state-of-art technology. The proposed approach will use facile, cost effective and scalable wet chemical process. Oceanit"s prior experience in designing and fabricating novel nanomaterials will be critical in the success of the proposed effort. BENEFIT: Successful outcome of the proposed research could have wide ranging impact on many DoD application including precision munitions and counter-munitions capability e. g. propellants, explosives, thermobarics, multi-purpose warhead. This technology will advance the coatings for all metallic nanoparticles for applications such as catalysis, environmental remediation, chemical and biological sensors, nanoelectronics.
