An accurate knowledge of the moisture content of a propellant explosive is of considerable importance in assessing its influence on the ballistic properties of the propellant, particularly in relation to variations in moisture content with changes in temperature and humidity. In the few instances where determinations of the moisture content have been reported in the literature, it is apparent that rather arbitrary methods have been employed which are unsatisfactory both for absolute estimations and for the measurement of small variations. It was evident that an accurate routine method was required for estimating quantities of water of the order of a few milligrams in all types of propellant explosives; for this purpose the procedure developed by Fischer^ was investigated with a view to applying it to propellants.
