Abstract

An accelerating rate calorimeter was developed for thermal hazard evaluation to provide time-temperature-pressure data for chemical reactions taking place under adiabatic conditions. The data interpretation is illustrated with an nth-order reaction. The technique was applied to a study of the thermal decomposition of N-methyl-N-nitroso-p-toluene sulfonamide, commonly known as Diazald.
