Ionic compounds as a general rule have greater bond strength than covalently bound molecules. This makes them more heat resistant, therefore it seems likely that a binary explosive consisting of an oxidizer salt and a fuel would be the way to go. Since you don't want the explosive to change phases during the mission, since it could leak or unmix, you'd want ...

The short answer as to why the rate of electrolysis increases with temperature likely relates to elevated efficiency. However depending on the nature of the cell, there can be an offset in the cell's corresponding longevity. In case of the electrolysis of molten sodium chloride, for example, the ions are free to migrate to the electrodes of an electrolytic ...
