Strategies have been developed to determine the kinetics and mechanisms of degradation of energetic molecules in water up to 500 deg C. FTIR and FT-Raman spectroscopy enable in situ studies to be made and provide a wide spectral window in which many species can be followed simultaneously. Numerous spectroscopic and cell design hurdles have been encountered and surmounted so far. Cell designs and a process flow system that should provide clean kinetic studies are nearly completed at this time.
