Abstract:

The invention provides metastable intermolecular composites that have good thermite properties while also being relatively insensitive to electrostatic discharge ignition. A preferred embodiment metastable intermolecular composite has a metal oxide nanostructure, which can be coated with an energetic polymer via a molecular linker or loaded with a gas generating polymer. Metal fuel nanoparticles coated with an energetic polymer via a molecular linker are closely associated with said metal oxide nanostructure. Methods of making metastable intermolecular composites are also provided by the invention.
