The chemical reaction zone is the region in a detonating explosive between the initial pressure spike and the sonic locus. Its length is affected by the properties of the explosive, and in some circumstances is difficult to determine experimentally. The reaction zone of one explosive (PETN) was measured using a capacitative sensing technique, and the results were used to develop a reactive hydrocode.
