Azide compounds are high energy materials with applications in many chemical reactions and applications. In this compilation, several methods are applied to calculate the thermal decomposition properties of azide compounds comprising of differential scanning calorimetery, differential thermal analysis and thermogravimeteric analysis which demonstrate temperature, energy and weight loss.
Following this, the authors assess the catalytic efficacy of nanosized bimetallic transition metal oxides of copper, iron and cobalt, with iron synthesized using the solution combustion method in a laboratory reactor. The prepared catalysts are characterized for their structure and particle size.
The authors also discuss thermal runaway in alkaline batteries. It is shown that a lot of experimental data exists that contradicts the generally accepted thermal runaway mechanism.
In conclusion, a novel kinetic model for pyrolysis of medium-density fiberboard derived Beech sawdust is proposed. The complete procedure includes a combined four parallel reaction model and three-component Log-Normal distributed reactivity model.
