Paper Title:
Ammonium Perchlorate Decomposition Characteristic Parameters Determination, a Simplified Approach
  Abstract

Effects of various grain sizes (10~390 µm) under heating rate of 40 °C/min on ammonium perchlorate (AP) decomposition characteristic parameters, the decomposition thermal behavior and kinetic parameters (activation energy and pre-exponential factor), were investigated by simultaneous DSC/TGA in a dynamic nitrogen atmosphere. In addition, the specific surface areas were measured by the BET-method. Moreover, the kinetic parameters were determined by a simplified approach based on the isoconversional method. The results showed that, the higher the AP particle size the lower the determined decomposition kinetic parameters. In addition, the results were in acceptable agreements with some important literatures. Moreover, it was highly recommended to apply the higher agreeable heating rates for AP samples to determine that parameters more accurately.
