I am interested in the rocket candy mentioned in the book "October Sky" and specifically the melting point of household sugar. Also, does the sucrose start to decompose before melting? Also, what is the temperature at which is the temperature begins to caramelize? Also, what are the other decomposition modes, if any? I have looked in my chemistry reference books, and they provide data for many sugars, but nothing on sucrose.
