Paper Abstract

The characterisation of reactions occuring during the thermally induced explosion of an energetic material is hampered by severe experimental difficulties. Dynamic techniques are essential in the study of such fast events but, unlike in the case of, for example, flash photolysis, synchronisation is difficult to arrange. We suggest here an approach in which data is obtained at a high rate and stored continuously on a video recorder so that the need for synchronisation is eliminated. Its use is illustrated here for a mass spectrometry study of the explosion of mercuric nitrotetrazole.
