Charsley, Edward L., Laye, Peter G., Markham, H.M., Rooney, James J., Berger, B., Griffiths, Trevor T. and Wasko, M.P. (2008) Thermal Studies on Rubidium Dinitramide. In: 35th International Pyrotechnics Seminar, 13-18 July 2008, Fort Collins, USA.

The present study has been carried out to investigate conflicting reports in the literature on the nature of the thermal decomposition of the energetic oxidant rubidium dinitramide in the liquid state. The techniques employed included DSC, simultaneous TG-DTA, simultaneous TG-mass spectrometry and thermomicroscopy. The measurements were supplemented by quantitative chemical analysis of the reaction products. The results showed that, following fusion at 106 °C, the overall decomposition proceeded in a single exothermic reaction stage forming a mixture of rubidium nitrate and rubidium nitrite in the molar ratio 1.2 : 1.
