Nanoenergetic materials characterize the energetic materials or energy systems that contain or consist of nano-components. The most developed nonoenergetic materials Advantage of using nano-energetic materials is their great reactivity and ability for fast chemical transformations.

This is a relatively new area of research and could lead to breakthrough in the development of advanced propellants, microenergetic devices and explosives. An efficient realization of unique properties of energetic materials can be achieved by studying the intrinsic mechanism of reactions. This bottom-up approach in the architecture of matter provides an insight of the mechanism of governing the properties of nanoenergetic materials can help develop new energetic substances with well-tailored chemical and physical properties. Another direction of research is based on nano-oxides, which have found application as catalyst in solid propellants as well as in pyrotechnic compositions. This book summarizes the research since 2005 of the leading research groups of the United States of America, Russia, Germany, Italy, Israel, and China. This book comprises contributions from 50 researchers from these countries and offers the latest developments in the area.

Besides being of academic interest of the graduate students and researchers, in the area of nano materials including nanometals, who are interested in the aspects of characterization, synthesis and applications of these materials.
