Abstract:

To aid in the development of boron-enhanced fluoro-nitramino explosives, the kinetics of individual reactions from those systems are investigated over wide temperature ranges. For BO O2 yields BO2 O the measurements agree with earlier observation in the 400 - 1000 K range. No reaction could be observed between BO and CO2 from 780 to 1200 K, indicating k less than 1 x 10exp -15cu cmmolecules. For BO N2O yields BO2 N2 k305- 920 K approx. 3 x 10exp -13exp-1310 KT cu cmmolecules was obtained. Explosives, Reaction Kinetics, Fluoro-Nitramino, BO, Boron.
