In this paper an overview of Molecular Dynamics simulations of chemically reacting systems is described. In particular, molecular dynamics simulations of shock initiation in a model energetic material are reported. The use of Molecular Dynamics to model thermal initiation and determine reactions rates in energetic materials is also discussed. Finally, the future potential of MD techniques for energetic materials applications is considered.
