During the detonation of oxygen-deficient high-explosive nano-sized condensed carbon particles are formed. Studiing of the carbon condensation process is necessary to verify the equation of state of the explosion products.

In this work, we carry out the dynamic measurement of small-angle x-ray scattering (SAXS) during the detonation of molten charges of TNT–RDX of different diameter. The dynamics of the average size of carbon particles are recovered from the SAXS data by new multi diameter method.
