Abstract : o continue storage, at ambient temperature, or selected propellant lots previously studied under this project and to note if (1) any visible evidence of deterioration develops, and (2) methyl violet paper is suitable for indicating instability of these propellants The second research objective was to continue the 65.5 C Surveillance Test orn the selected propellant samples.
