The catalytical action of ferric oxide on different stages of disintegration of ammonium perchlorate, and also disintegration of pure ammonium perchlorate in the same conditions was studied. The addition of ferric oxide at 210-240C hardly affected the course of the reaction, but at 245-270C rendered significant catalytical action. Analysis of kinetic data leads to the conclusion that ferric oxide promotes acceleration of the process of transmission of electrons from anions to cations which is the controlling stage of the reaction. Ferric oxide also catalyzed the reaction of ammonium perchlorate at high temperature.
