A brief review and results of experimental investigation of the properties of energy-saturated nanoporous silicon-based composites are presented. Various types of oxidants used in the composites are examined. Calcium perchlorate has been used as an oxidant. The energy-saturated composite under study is shown to exceed in several parameters the primary explosive, mercury fulminate and brisant explosive, RDX.



The study was supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, project no. 16-29-01085 ofi_m.
