||Thermochemical data such as boiling point, heat of vaporisation and flash point, and kinetic parameters of thermal decomposition for C3-C10 aliphatic nitrates were measured to evaluate their hazardous properties. Intermolecular attractive forces increase as the carbon chain becomes longer, resulting in higher boiling points and greater heats of vaporisation. Flash point is a linear function of boiling point, as in the case of alkanes. The rate equations for isothermal decomposition are 1/2-order. Decomposition proceeds by similar reaction mechanisms for all the nitrates.
