Title: Development of new ammonium nitrate composite explosives. Final report, October 1982-January 1984. [Ammonium salt of 5-nitrotetrazole (ANT); ethylene diamine salt of 5-nitrotetrazole (ENT); diethylene triamine trinitrate (DETN); ethylene diaminedinitrate (EDD)]

Abstract

Studies of several ammonium nitrate (AN)-based composite explosive systems were continued from earlier work. The critical temperature (T/sub c/) of AN/ANT, AN/ENT, and AN/DETN systems were measured and their thermal stabilities evaluated. We have also studied the effect of ENT on the melt temperature of EA (EDD/AN) and found that ENT forms a eutectic with EA. The eutectic temperature of the ternary system AN/EDD/ENT (AENT) is 89/sup 0/C. Results from an initial phase-diagram study of the quaternary system AN/KN/EDD/DETN (DEAK) are also presented. 4 refs., 9 figs., 5 tabs.
