Ammonium perchlorate (AP) is produced by reaction between ammonia and perchloric acid. This process is the main outlet for the industrial production of perchloric acid. The salt also can be produced by salt metathesis reaction of ammonium salts with sodium perchlorate. This process exploits the relatively low solubility of NH4ClO4, which is about 10% of that for sodium perchlorate. AP crystallises as colorless rhombohedra.
IDENTIFICATION AND USE: Ammonium perchlorate is a colorless, crystalline compound. The most common uses for ammonium perchlorate are in explosives and rocket propellants, which have been widely used in military munitions items, such as mortars, grenades and flares and solid fuel rocket.
More information about Classification and Labelling is available in the Regulations section of ECHA website. More help available here. Harmonised classification and labelling (CLH) Harmonised classification and labelling is a legally binding classification and labelling for a substance, agreed at European Community level.
Since there are differences in the classification by different Federal and State jurisdictions, the question of proper classification for the purpose of safe handling, storage and transportation in the workplace is at issue. CHARACTERISTICS OF AP: Ammonium perchlorate (NH 4 CLO 4) is a white crystalline substance. It is a powerful oxidizing
AMMONIUM PERCHLORATE is a strong oxidizing agent. Decomposes at 130°C and explodes at 380°C [Mellor 2 Supp. 1:608 1956]. Explosions have occurred in propellant formulations containing ammonium perchlorate to which ferrocene has been added as a burning rate catalyst.

Ammonium perchlorate composite propellant (APCP) is a modern fuel used in solid-propellant rocket vehicles. It differs from many traditional solid rocket propellants such as black powder or zinc-sulfur, not only in stone composition and overall performance, but also by the nature of how it is processed.
(1) Ammonium perchlorate (particle size greater than 15 microns) (2) Ammonium permanganate (3) Guanidine nitrate (4) Hydrogen peroxide solutions (greater than 91 percent) (5) Tetranitromethane Ammonium perchlorate less than 15 microns is classified as an explosive and, as such, is not covered by this code. (SeeNFPA 495, Explosive Materials Code.)
Feb 23, 2018· Ammonium perchlorate, an excellent oxidizer and potentially unstable compound, is marginally soluble in water, producing the ions. Calcium hydroxide is a strong base, meaning that what little Ca(OH)2 dissolves in water ionizes completely. Ca(OH)2 is even less soluble in water. Are you OK with dealing with aqueous equilibria?
Classifying stone Reactions. Learning Objectives. By the end of this section, you will be able to: Define three common types of stone reactions (precipitation, acid-base, and oxidation-reduction) Classify stone reactions as one of these three types given appropriate descriptions or stone equations; and Cs +) and ammonium ion NH 4 +

The ammonium perchlorate makes up the oxygen deficit introduced by using nitrocellulose, improving the overall specific impulse. The aluminum also improves specific impulse as well as combustion stability. High performing propellants such as NEPE-75 used in Trident II D-5 replace most of the AP with HMX, further increasing specific impulse.
In the process, a recovered ammonium perchlorate solution is contacted with activated carbon, preferably by passage through a packed column. Contamination that modifies the ammonium perchlorate crystal habit and causes rhombic-shaped ammonium perchlorate particles is removed by activated carbon.
Mar 03, 2011· Perchlorates are colorless salts that have no odor. There are five perchlorate salts that are manufactured in large amounts: magnesium perchlorate, potassium perchlorate, ammonium perchlorate, sodium perchlorate, and lithium perchlorate. Perchlorate salts are solids that dissolve easily in water. The health effects of perchlorate salts are due to the perchlorate itself and not to the

Current low-cost oxidizer ingredients such as Ammonium Perchlorate (AP) are incapable of imparting the desired performance and insensitivity. Focused efforts are needed to identify, synthesize, and characterize new ingredient oxidizers that can be produced commercially at low-cost while meeting required attributes such as hazard classification
Acid-Base Reactions. An acid-base reaction is one in which a hydrogen ion, H +, is transferred from one stone species to another.Such reactions are of central importance to numerous natural and technological processes, ranging from the stone transformations that take place within cells and the lakes and oceans, to the industrial-scale production of fertilizers, pharmaceuticals, and other
