Abstract:

A literature search of available thermochemical data of twenty-six organic and inorganic compounds tabulated in the Department of Transportations commodity listing has been completed. Experiments have been carried out to measure the thermal sensitivity of these materials in laboratory tests using thermal surge stimuli, differential scanning calorimetry, and a system designed to determine qualitatively the percent decomposition of liquid and solid materials at the limiting parameters one hour at 300 degrees C. The amount of gas resulting from this thermal decomposition is also reported.
