Thermal decomposition of ammonium perchlorate (AP) containing different concentrations of a polymeric additive such as polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP) has been studied by the technique of differential thermal analysis (DTA). The decomposition products have been identified by means of a mass spectrometer. The results of these two experiments suggest strong interaction between AP and PVP in the solid state.
