The explosion products of 1,2-DP were analyzed with the aid of a Beckman GC-2A Gas Chromatograph. For explosive conditions the volume of the major products N2C2H2HCN was 2.511. For non-explosive decomposition conditions N2 and C2H2 appeared in about the same quantities and HCN was slightly less than C2H2. The survival of thermodynamically unstable HCN and C2H2 indicate primary reaction products, an important consideration in the formulation of the chain reaction mechanism. F2 induced explosion and inhibition of explosion by O2 is described by a chemical reaction scheme. The postulated reaction scheme of F and DP is reconciled with the high temperature explosion scheme of pure DP vapor.
