The Effect of Sample Containers on the Ignition Temperature of Sulfur/Chlorate Mixtures

D. Chapman and J. E. Fletcher

ABSTRACT: In this communication we report the lowered thermal stability of sulfur/chlorate mixtures in contact with glass surfaces. Ignition temperatures as low as 100 °C were found in glass test tubes and are about 15 °C less than for the same mixture in a cardboard fireworks tube.

Keywords: chlorate, sulfur, thermal stability, ignition temperature, glass
