Daniel B Nielson, Dean M Lester: Use of carbon fibrils to enhance burn rate of pyrotechnics and gas generants. Thiokol Corporation, Ronald L Madson & Metcalf Lyons, November 28, 1995: US05470408 (34 worldwide citation)

Conductive carbon fibrils are incorporated into energetic compositions to enhance the burn rate. The carbon fibrils are grown catalytically from carbon precursors and are substantially free of pyrolytically deposited thermal carbon. The fibrils generally have a length in the range from about 1.mu. t ...
