Abstract:

This preliminary report demonstrates that the lead azide-lithium chloride system can be treated kinetically. The study shows the optimum composition of lead azide and lithium chloride, and suggests means of accelerating the destruction of the lead azide. The data which is suspect in the calculation appears to be 1 the solubility product of lead azide, 2 the solubility product of PbOHN3, and 3 the distribution coefficient of hydrazoic acid between air and water as a function of temperature.
