Various experiments were conducted at laboratory scale for synthesis of some commercial grade energetic material using decanted TNT Unsvc and other ingredients listed in Table 1.
TG Curves of Chinese TNT Svc, Decanted TNT Unsvc, TNT/15% Al and TNT/ 26% Al samples
TG curves for Chinese TNT Svc, Decanted TNT Unsvc, TNT/15% Al and TNT/ 26% Al samples
The results show that DTA curves (Heat flow curve) of Chinese TNT svc and decanted TNT Unsvc give two distinct sharp peaks which are endothermic in nature.
It has also been observed that decanted TNT Unsvc sample melted earlier than Chinese TNT svc but its thermal decomposition took place later than Chinese TNT svc.
The results from XRD pattern shows four distinct diffraction peaks for Chinese TNT svc as well as decanted TNT unsvc sample which are very similar to pure TNT peaks available in literature.
