Abstract : The binary phase diagram for the 1,3,3,trinitroazetidine (TNAZ)/ 2,4,6,trinitrotoluene (TNT) system has been predicted computationally by using the measured heats of fusion and melting points associated with the individual components. Experimentally, it has been demonstrated that mixtures of TNAZ and TNT exhibit the thermal characteristics associated with a simple binary eutectic system affected by polymorphism that is attributed to both components. Heat of fusion data from the mixtures are presented and used to support the polymorph conclusions.
