Abstract:

The synthesis of light metal nitrates as possible strong oxidizers with low oxidation equivalent weights was undertaken. Complexes of these nitrates having ligands of relatively low molecular weight were emphasized. Synthesis of such complexes of Li and Mg nitrates was attempted by reactions of liquid dinitrogen tetroxide with various Li and Mg compounds. The formation of dinitrogen tetroxide adducts of these metal nitrates was studied. The solubilities of KClO4 and NAClO4 at 30 deg C were determined in the mixed solvent H20-H20 as a function of solvent composition ternary phase diagrams were constructed for these systems.
