A degradation product of ascorbic acid or isoascorbic acid obtained by heating the acid at a temperature between about 70°C. and about 210°C. until partial or complete decomposition of the acid occurs, useful in admixture with various nitrate-containing oxidation agents as an explosive and propellant material for a wide range of specific applications.
A process for producing an explosive composition comprising the steps of: a. heating ascorbic acid or isoascorbic acid in the absence of a nitrate containing substance at a temperature between about 70°C. and about 210°C. until about 10 to about 100 percent of the acid is degraded, forming a degradation product; and then b. at a temperature of less than about 40°C. mixing a nitrate-containing oxidization agent with said degradation product to form the explosive composition.
