Energetic nanomaterials offer the potential of extremely high energy release, extraordinary combustion efficiency, high degree of tailorability with regards to rate of energy release, and reduced sensitivity. In this article, the concept issue (background and connotation) of energetic nanomaterials was introduced, and its recent progress in preparation,characterization, properties, relationship between structure and properties was summarized, and its superiority, possible and practical applications was reviewed with 13references respectively. In addition, some major problems in further research of energetic nanomaterials and their application in ammunition were also prospected.
