Thermal oscillations in the decomposition of organic peroxides: Identification of a hazard, utilization, and suppression
The purpose of this research is to identify and characterize oscillatory thermal instability in organic peroxides that are used in vast quantities in industry and misused by terrorists. The explosive thermal decompositions of lauroyl peroxide, methyl ethyl ketone peroxide, and triacetone triperoxide are investigated computationally, using a continuous stirred tank reactor model and literature values of the kinetic and thermal parameters. Mathematical stability analysis is used to identify and...[Show more]
