Abstract:

The report gives the results of research on the catalytic decomposition of sodium and potassium chlorates and perchlorates at low temperatures, and at these temperatures dissociation, when there is practically no dissociation, in the absence of a catalyst. In the experiments a fraction of salt crystals with a diameter of 0.14-0.20 mm mixed with MnO2 1 was used. The degree of decomposition of the specimen 300 mg was recorded using a type ADB-200 balance. Surface diffusion apparently plays an important role in the reaction kinetics.
