Abstract: The features of combustion of energy compositions based on inert and active combustible binders with ammonium nitrate in the
pressure range up to 10 MPa have been determined. A comparative analysis of the effect of nanosized metal powders on the
combustion process of compositions with various fillers: HMX, ammonium nitrate, CL-20 is presented. The efficiency of metal (Cu,
Ni, Mo, Al, Zn) and non-metal (B) nano powders as combustion catalysts is shown.
