|Abstract:||Four alkaline earth metal (Mg, Ca, Sr, Ba) salts of 5-nitro-2,4-dihydro-3H-l ,2,4-triazole-3-one (NTO) have been prepared and characterised. The thermal and explosive behaviour of these hydrated salts were studied by TG, DTA and explosion delay measurements. The activation energy for the explosion is found in the range 28-34 kJ mol-1. A suitable pathway involving slow thermolysis (decomposition) and rapid thermolysis (explosion) have been suggested. The oxidation reduction reactions near the surface of thermolysing material [M(NTO)2.nH2O] seems to be responsible for the decomposition and explosion.|
