    • Abstract


      To understand the rote of lead salts of organic acids in the combustion of double base rocket propellants, thermal decomposition behaviour of propellants was studied bydta andtg methods. Catalysed propellants decomposed at lower temperatures than the control. Percent thermal decomposition of propellants containing lead salts was also higher. Rate constants were higher and energy of activation was lower for catalysed propellants. Results obtained suggest that condensed phase reactions may be the site for the action of lead salts in the combustion of double base propellants
