Abstract

THE decomposition of ammonium perchlorate has been examined by Bircumshaw and Newman1, and Galwey and Jacobs2, respectively. They have observed that the decomposition of the salt occurs according to two different mechanisms. At lower temperature (between 200° and 280° C), when only about 30 per cent of the substance decomposes, the electron transfer mechanism dominates, the energy of activation is 32 kcal., and at higher temperature (between 350° and 400° C.) the proton transfer mechanism plays a decisive part (E = 39.5 cal.).
