Chlorfreie Pyrotechnik: “grüne” Emission blauen Lichtes durch Kupfer(I)‐iodid
Die Erzeugung blauen Lichtes in pyrotechnischen Formulierungen wurde ohne den Einsatz von chlorhaltigen Verbindungen erreicht, wobei sich Kupfer(I)-iodid als geeigneter molekularer Emitter blauen
Chlorine-free pyrotechnics: copper(I) iodide as a "green" blue-light emitter.
The most optimal copper(I) iodide based blue-light-emitting formulation was found to have performances exceeding those of chlorine-containing compositions, and was foundTo be insensitive to various ignition stimuli.
Improved green-light-emitting pyrotechnic formulations based on tris(2,2,2-trinitroethyl)borate and boron carbide.
The best performing formulations were found to be insensitive to various ignition stimuli, and exhibited very high spectral purities and luminosities compared to previously reported green-light-emitting formulations.
Combustion of Ytterbium Metal
Magnesium is the most important metallic fuel in pyrotechnic compositions. It is mainly used in signaling [1] and illuminating compositions [2] as well as in black body flare compositions for
