Chemistry of Pyrotechnics: Basic Course
Coordinated through Training and Consulting, Inc.
The Chemistry of Pyrotechnics Basic Course is a week-long course designed to provide students with a firm understanding of the basic principles of pyrotechnics, propellants and explosives. These principles are presented from a chemistry perspective and will be understood by both students with a small amount of chemistry background and those more deeply involved with energetic chemistry.  The course is intended to be of interest to persons engaged in the design, manufacture, management, identification, regulation, analysis, disposal, and use of all types of energetic compositions.  All three areas: pyrotechnics, propellants, and explosives will be discussed in detail highlighting their similarities as well as their differences.  Each day, the principles discussed in the lectures will be demonstrated in the laboratory.  At the end of the week, students will be given the opportunity to mix and test very limited amounts of pyrotechnic compositions. Both the chemicals and the hands-on instructional materials will be provided.  Additionally, a copy of “Chemistry of Pyrotechnics – Basic Principles and Theory”, by Dr. John A. Conkling and Mr. Christopher Mocella, will be provided for each student.
