Abstract:

This program has produced detailed information concerning the chemical behavior of halogen isocyanate, halogen amine, and halogen azide systems. These types of molecules can store considerable amounts of energy, which can be released by photolysis, chemical reaction, or energy transfer processes. In a number of the particular cases studied, the energy release was strongly constrained by angular momentum conservation rules. The data obtained from this program are relevant to the development of new laser systems, new propellants, and the understanding of combustion processes. TTL
