Abstract : The accomplished research has involved (1) the construction of new instrumentation for the investigation of transient high energy materials; (2) the exploration of how the chemistry of transient high energy materials is modified by adsorption on the surfaces at interfaces; and (3) the exploration of how the chemistry and dynamics of high energy density materials respond to systematic variations in structure, and experimental variables such as pressure, magnetic fields and temperature. Particular emphasis has been given to reactions in microheterogeneous environments and interfaces provided by micelles, polymers and porous solids. Since the initiation of this grant, a time resolved electron spin resonance spectrometer and a time resolved NMR spectrometer capable of measuring CIDNP spectra on a routine basis have been constructed.
