Abstract

The thermal decomposition of potassium chlorate has been shown to be complex. Oxygen is evolved and, depending upon the conditions, various quantities of perchlorate are formed. At least two sets of equations have been proposed to explain the reaction. Otto and Fry (5) proposed that potassium chlorate decomposes by two simultaneous reactions.
