Abstract

Many explosives, both solid and liquid, are characterized by weak (Van der Waals) intermolecular bonds and strong (covalent) intramolecular bonds. In such substances the average frequency of the intermolecular (acoustic) vibration spectrum is ordinarily smaller by a factor of ten or more than that associated with intra-molecular (optic) vibrations. For convenience we will label such substances heterochoate.
