Any other information on results incl. tables

The test was conducted in a closed glass tube. The test was conducted with a DTA-analyzer from Heraeus. The heating rate was 10 K/min (pretest) and 1 K/min (main test). The substance decomposes exothermally with an onset temperature of 260°C (Peak Max. ca. 365°C).
