Thermal relaxation oscillations in liquid organic peroxides

Ball, Rowena


The purpose of this work is to investigate, characterize, and disseminate better understanding of oscillatory thermal instability in exothermically reactive liquids, with the objectives of improving industrial safety and helping to prevent the misuse of liquid explosives. The explosive thermal decomposition of organic peroxides in the liquid phase is investigated computationally, using a continuous stirred tank reactor model and literature values of the kinetic and thermal parameters.
