Abstract:

A considerable number of works have been devoted to a study of the catalysis mechanism in the burning of condensed mixtures on the base of ammonium perchlorate AP. There is no single point of view on this question. The data of some authors confirm the gas-phase mechanism for the action of the catalyst while experiments indicate that the place of action of the catalyst is the condensed phase. The theory of the strongest possible catalyst in the gas phase predicts the strong dependence of the catalysts effectiveness on its dispersion. This work is devoted to an experimental study of the mechanism of the catalysts action on the burning of condensed systems on the base of AP.
