The history and evolution of explosives reach about two millennia backwards. Starting form the black powder, thought nitro-compounds and nitro-esthers, current directions of researches concern coordination transition metal compounds, called compounded salt. This researches leads to a number of new chemical structures which posses explosive parameters, just like blasting or primary explosives and propellants.
