Abstract:

Single crystals have been prepared from ammonium perchlorate A.P. solutions containing 20 by weight BaClO42. Analyses for Ba content in the crystals are being made. Single crystals of methyl ammonium perchlorate were grown and submitted for combustion testing comparison with pure A. P. A number of new perchlorate and nitrate oxidizers were prepared and characterization was begun. To date, the fastest burning oxidizer has been methyl ammonium perchlorate 2 12 times as fast as A. P. and the slowest has been tetramethyl ammonium nitrate 12 as fast as A. P..
