An ammonium perchlorate (AP) and copper(II) benzoate pyrotechnic blue-flame composition was gradually diluted by adding an experimental perchlorate-free blue-flame composition based on aminoguanidinium nitrate (AGN), malachite, PVC powder and shellac resin. Flame's luminous intensity and specific luminous intensity were recorded and analyzed. A copper-aminoguanidinium (CuAG) complex was also synthesized and tested as an energetic additive in perchlorate-free blue-flame composition. Green-flame color was observed when testing chlorine-free energetic compositions with CuAG.
