A thin-film thermometric device was used to record the temperature profiles of the exothermic reactions occurring between various substituted benzenes and anhydrous nitric acid. A comparison of the profiles indicated that the extent of exothermicity and the rate of heat evolution depend on the substituent/s on the benzene ring. The initial reaction was identified as nitration, which is accompanied by other exothermic reactions, especially in systems leading to ignition. The profiles of the self-igniting systems, amine-$HNO_3$ and amine-$N_2O_4$, suggest that, apart from their individual exothermicities, the specific nature of the fuel-oxidizer reaction also plays an important role in the onset of ignition.
