Retracted Article: Catalytic decomposition of ammonium dinitramide (ADN) as high energetic material over CuO-based catalysts
CuO supported on a La2O3-doped alumina catalyst was prepared and tested in the decomposition process of an ADN–water energetic propellant. The decomposition products were investigated via on-line analysis. Moreover, CuO/Al2O3–La2O3 shows better results of ADN decomposition in comparison with CuO/Al2O3. Both catalysts were characterized by physico-chemical techniques.
