Polymorphism in Molecular Crystals

ShotBored - 2-3-2023 at 12:48

Hey guys,

I'm thinking about buying a text on polymorph transitions for energetic materials for my professional work. I was curious if any of you had Bernstein's "Polymorphism in Molecular Crystals 2e" or the first edition and could pre-confirm that the molecules I'm looking for (RDX, HMX, NQ, TATB) are in the text? I've attempted to search everywhere and can't get a good answer. I'm sure it's a good book to have around even for my hobbyist efforts too. Any other recommendations would be welcome. I'm doing some funky stuff involving energetics milling and want to quadruple check some things. My overlords aren't fond of me cratering one of the labs...

Thanks

The first two are definitely in the index:
