Abstract:

The ignition of triethanol ammonium nitrate in 02 and N20 has been studied in a shock tube over the temperature range from 1,300 K to 1,950 K. The ignition threshold for TEAN in 5 N20 is above 1,300 K. The reactions can be described by Arrhenius kinetics with activation energies of 17.0 kcalmol and 20.7 kcamol, respectively.
