Ammonium nitrate (AN) is used as oxidizer in solid propellants, explosives, gas generator systems and also as a fertilizer. The AN crystallizes in five polymorphic phases that appear at different temps. Phase transition of AN from one polymorphic phase to another is very important as an oxidizer and also as fertilizer. During its use as an oxidizer, whether pressure plays any role in phase transition is described in this paper. High pressure-DTA (HP-DTA) system is used for this study.
