    • Abstract


      The mode of decomposition of 2,4,N-trinitro anilino acetic acid [Glycine, N-(2,4 dinitrophenyl), N-nitro] and its methyl and ethyl esters has been determined from a study of the kinetic parameters of their thermal decomposition usingdta, isolation and identification of some of the nonvolatile products of decomposition, and confirmed from a mass spectral study. It is concluded that these compounds decompose through the scission of N−NO2 bond.
