The studies of radiation decomposition of ammonium nitrate in the presence of MnO2, PbO and V2O5 with the absorbed dose reveal that MnO2 retards while PbO and V2O5 accelerate the rate of radiolysis. G/NO 2 / values were found to increase with the mole% of V2O5 in an admixture. The results are explained on the basis of electron donor-acceptor properties of oxides affecting the equilibrium concentration of electrons present in pure ammonium nitrate in the presence of the added oxides.
