Thermal stability of flavianic acid disodium salt
Zhi−Min Fu, Yusaku Iwata, and Hiroshi Koseki


The thermal stability of flavianic acid disodium salt was studied theoretically and experimentally. The prediction results with the Computer Program for Chemical Thermodynamic and Energy Release Evaluation (CHETAH version 7.3) show flavianic acid hydrate and flavianic acid disodium salt have high rank of maximum heat of decomposition and fuel value-heat of decomposition. The experimental results by the Accelerating Rate Calorimeter (ARC) and C 80 demonstrate particle size difference has no significant effect on the thermal stability of flavianic acid disodium salt and flavianic acid hydrate has the low thermal stability than that of flavianic acid disodium salt.
