The thermal decomposition of sodium azide has been investigated in the temperature range 240–365°C. Three values for the activation energy, 37.0, 59.0 and 14 kcal mol−1 have been obtained depending on the temperature range of study. The mechanism of decomposition seems to involve excited azide ions (through internal conversion) and excitations. The activation energy of 14 kcal mol−1 appears to be associated with the promotion of electron in the presence of sodium metal.
