Abstract:

An overview of the development of the theory of electrical conductance of electrolytes is presented. Conditions where ion-pairing can occur is emphasized. Electrical conductance versus both concentration and temperature is reported for aqueous hydroxylammonium nitrate HAN solutions. Electrical conductance versus temperature is reported for liquid gun propellants LGP 1845 and LGP 1846. Possible local molecular structure consistent with the observed data is discussed.
