Abstract : The patent concerns a method for preparing uniform well-defined ammonium perchlorate crystals of controlled size which comprises dissolving ammonium perchlorate in an organic solvent and then precipitating in a mixture of an organic solvent and non-solvent for ammonium perchlorate. The ratio of solvent to non-solvent in the precipitating solution determines the size of the resulting crystals.
