The kinetics of the decomposition of ammonium perchlorate (AP) in the presence of rare earth oxides, yttrium oxide (Y2O3) and lanthanum oxide (La2O3) as catalysts have been investigated. The Prout-Tompkins and contracting-cube equations have been found to fit the isothermal thermogravimetry data of catalysed AP decomposition. Gases evolved during catalytic decomposition of AP were analysed by infrared spectroscopy by matrix isolation technique. The mechanism of the catalysed thermal decomposition of AP has also been discussed in terms of an electron transfer process.
