Abstract

Abstract The kinetics of the thermal decomposition of sodium, potassium, rubidium and caesium perchlorates show a pronounced dependence on the past mechanical history of the materials. The variation in the decomposition rate with strain energy and lattice distortion shows that crystal defects are important factors in the thermal reactivity of alkali metal perehlorates.
