Abstract : The third conference on the environmental chemistry of hydrazine fuels consisted of the following five general sessions: gas-phase kinetics and models; soil, surface, and matrix isolation studies; hydrazine disposal studies; detection and monitoring; and toxicology. Researchers in these areas of hydrazine fuels chemistry gave short lectures and afterwards entertained questions. The plenary lecture, entitled '100 Years of Hydrazine Chemistry,' was given by Dr Eckart W. Schmidt. The first session dealt with gas-phase kinetics and models and included results from studies of the atmospheric reactions of hydrazine fuels with atmospheric pollutants, decay studies in Teflon chambers, and the interaction of hydrazine fuels with metals and metal oxides. Results show that hydrazine in the vapor state does not react with oxygen at atmospheric conditions, but does not react with commonly occurring pollutants, such as ozone, nitrogen oxides, and sulfur oxides. Hydrazine can be oxidized by certain metals and metal oxides, including aluminum and cupric oxide. Keywords: Hydrazine fuels, Gas phase kinetics, Models, Soil studies, Matrix isolation studies, Disposal studies, Detection, Monitoring, Toxicology.
