This report reviews the current state of knowledge concerning the gas kinetic mechanisms involved in the suppression of muzzle flash by alkali- salts. Elementary kinetic mechanisms are discussed. A potentially important apparent discrepancy between two laboratory measurements of flame inhibition is critically reviewed. Suggestions and recommendations for future work are given.
