Correlations between the Kinetics of Decomposition and the Crystal Structure for Some Inorganic Azide Single Crystals

  • H. T. Spath


The kinetics of thermal decomposition of single crystals of a solid must be described in terms of time and space coordinates.An interpretation of the overall fractional decomposition (α) vs. time (t) — functions presupposes information about the geometry of the growing nuclei and the growing interfaces, resp., i.e. their orientation relative to the crystallographic axes. A prominent group of solids where information of this kind is available have been found within the inorganic azides, among others T1N3, NaN3, Pb(N3)2, AgN3 and Ba(N3)2.
