Title: A vacuum ultraviolet photoionization study on the thermal decomposition of ammonium perchlorate

Abstract

Pyrolysis products of ammonium perchlorate (NH 4ClO 4) at 483 K were monitored on line and in situ via single photon photoionization reflectron time-of-flight spectrometry (PI-ReTOF-MS) in the photon energy range of 9.00–17.50 eV. The photoionization efficiency curves (PIE) of the subliming product molecules were collected and allowed for detection of three class of products containing chlorine, nitrogen, and oxygen including atoms and free radicals. The results found suggest a new insight into possible low-temperature decomposition pathways of NH 4ClO 4.
