Abstract:

To aid in the development of boron-enhanced fluoronitramino explosives, the kinetics of individual reactions are measured over wide temperature ranges. The following rate expressions, in cu cm molecules, were obtained. For BO2 H2 right arrow HOBO H k500-1250 K 3.6x10exp -11exp-4198 KT, for BO CO2 right arrow BO2 CO k780-1200 K 2.7x10exp -14, for BO2 CO right arrow BO CO2 k1000 K 6.0x10exp -14, for BO O2 right arrow BO2 O k300-960 K 7.9x10exp -12exp161 KT.
