Abstract:

The compatibility and stability characteristics of hydroxylammonium perchlorate HAP and hydrazinium diperchlorate HP-2 have been studied. The inherent reactivities of the oxidizers with several types of organic substances were of particular interest. Both oxidizers are indicated by the study to be relatively weak oxidizers, with HP-2 being slightly more reactive than HAP. Both oxidizers, however, promote organic reactions of practical and fundamental interest. The latter reactions are those expected of organic substances in acid, dehydrating media.
