RÉSUMÉ

This work investigates energetic materials based on nanoporous silicon fuel impregnated with sodium perchlorate oxidizer. The nanoporous silicon samples were prepared by anodization of silicon in a hydrofluoric acid solution, and the influence of the electric current density on the nanoporous structure was studied. The impregnation process was investigated thoroughly in order to achieve optimized pore filling by the sodium perchlorate oxidizer. Thermal analysis using differential scanning calorimetry was performed in order to characterize the energetic reaction and compare between the different samples. Feasibility proof for an energetic reaction of nanoporous silicon impregnated with sodium perchlorate oxidizer was demonstrated by ignition of the samples on a hot plate.
