Kalichevsky, Vladimir A. (1924) Manufacturing of perchloric acid. Bachelor's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-05052006-154839
The object of this research was to study quantitatively possibilities of a continuous process of production of perchloric acid from nitrogen peroxide and ammonium perchlorate. Perchloric acid has many properties which make it an important acid in industrial and analytical work and its use would be much greater if its cost of production could be lowered. It is a strong monobasic acid, stable in solutions (up to 60%), has a high boiling point. There are relatively few insoluble salts (potassium, rubidium, caesium, and thallium perchlorates are only highly soluble) and the difference in solubilities of potassium and sodium perchlorates give an easy method of separation of these two metals in analytical work.
