Sensitizing Efficiency of Some Added Metal Salts on the Thermal and Explosive Characteristics of Hydrazenium Monoperchlorate and Hydrazenium Diperchlorate
Keywords: Initiatory explosives, Activation energy, Thermal sensitizing efficiency, Mercury fulminate
AbstractSensitivity to heat, impact and friction of hydrazenium-monoperchlorate and hydrazenium-diperchlorate have been investigated and the sensitizing efficiency of some added metal salts evaluated. The thermal sensitizing efficiency of the additives follow the order CuCrO/sub 4/ > CuCl/sub 2/ >NiO > Fe/sub 2/O/sub 3/ > MgO. The activation energy values obtained from explosion delay time are comparable with the values reported for thermal decomposition studies and are close to the activation energy value for thermal decomposition studies and are close to the activation energy value for thermal decomposition of anhydrous perchloric acid. The F of I values for these compounds are in the range reported for common initiatory explosives and are of the same order as that for mercury fulminate.
