Verneker, Vencatesh R. Pai and Kishore, Kaushal and Kannan, Malayan P (1977) Effect of pretreatment on the sublimation of ammonium perchlorate. In: Journal of Applied Chemistry and Biotechnology, 27 (1). pp. 309-317.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
The effects of pretreatments on the sublimation of pure ammonium perchlorate (AP) were studied by differential thermal analysis. The addition of inorganic salts (doping), or preheating, lead to desensitisation of the sublimation process, whereas it was sensitised by precompression. Sublimation increased with decrease in the particle size of the AP from 500 to 200 microns, but decreased with a further decrease in size from 200 to 100 microns. The results are interpreted in terms of gross imperfections and strain in the AP crystals.
