Abstract:

The reaction products of fuel-rich diborane-air explosions were investigated. In the equivalence ratio range of 3-80 no significant reaction of the nitrogen to form BN was observed. Up to E.R. of 20, 95 of the hydrogen appears as molecular hydrogen. For richer mixtures a significant portion of the available hydrogen remains in the solid reaction products. The color of the latter changes from black colloidal boron to a pale yellow solid boron hydrides indicating a profound change in the nature of the solid reaction products. Author
