Reaction of azodicarbonamide and oxider (*in Japanese)
Kenichi Yamasaki, Michio Koga, and Toshiaki Tsuru


Although the thermal decomposition mechanism of azodicarbonamide is not clarified, it is known that evolved of carbon monoxide and ammonia gas from thermal decomposition. By this research, thermal analysis was performed for solved thermal decomposition mechanism of azodicarbonamide, and reaction mechanism was examined. Moreover, in order to also consider evolving gas component improvement, thermal decomposition mechanism of oxidizer mixture was considered and the following results were obtained.
1) The reaction of thermal decomposition of azodicarbonamide simple substance was presumed. Moreover, as for thermal decomposition, a reaction changes with decomposition temperature.
2) When copper oxide was mixed, generating of carbon monoxide controls by the reaction of copper oxide and radical from thermal decomposition.
3) Also the reaction was not change by mixed potassium perchlorate, but the reaction is change when adding active carbon as a catalyst.
