Abstract
This documents is the final report required by the task from the Directorate of Ammunition Engineering Service aimed to develop modern methods to monitor the chemical stability and remaining safelife of the gun powders stocked by the Canadian Forces. Initially, there is a review of the chemistry of propellant ageing and the various techniques available to monitor the chemical stability. This is followed by the description of the development of two fast, reliable and efficient high performance liquid chromatography methods. Finally, the application of these two methods for the surveillance programme of diphenylamine and ethycentralite-stabilized gun propellants are discussed.
