State of sulfur behind shock fronts

  • I. M. Voskoboinikov


The state parameters of sulfur behind a shock front are calculated taking into account the possibility of destruction of the basic state S8 to S2 at temperatures above 103 K. The Hugoniot of S2 at temperatures above 103 K and pressures above 10 GPa was constructed using Hugoniot of liquid carbon disulfide and assuming that carbon disulfide decomposes into sulfur and carbon. Calculated Hugoniots of crystalline and molten sulfur are compared with experimental data.
