Abstract : To aid in the development of boron-enhanced fluoronitramino explosives, the kinetics of individual reactions are measured over wide temperature ranges. Using the HTFFR technique it was established that, for BO + HCl yields OBCl + H, k (300-760 K) = (5.7x 10(exp-13))exp(-1437 K/T)cu cm/molecule/s. Currently this determination, and HTFFR results on the BO reactions with O2, CO2 and N2O, are being checked with an MHTP reactor.
