AbstractThe thermal decomposition of explosives: pentaerythrol tetranitrate (PETN), 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene(TNT), cyclo-1,3,5-trimethylene-2,4,6-trinitroamine (RDX) and their two-component mixtures with 40\% of lead compounds [PbO, Pb3O4, Pb(NO3)2] were performed. The simple method of determination of stability changes in the mixtures described above, in comparison with pure explosives was presented. The lead oxides accelerated significantly the thermal decomposition of explosives. Pb(NO3)2 acts as a catalyst in the mixture containing TNT degradation, but not in a case of PETN and RDX.
