Abstract:

Chemical research on high-energy propellants was continued on various aspects of the propulsion research program. In a time-of-flight mass spectrometric investigation it was found that krypton and xenon hydrides are not formed by the reaction of atomic hydrogen and the respective inert gases. Investigation of the synthesis of metal hydrides by the reaction of hydrogen, a metal halide, and a Grignard reagent was completed. Preliminary experimental results on the investigation of the mechanism of thermal decomposition of organic azides are presented. Tentative structures are presented for the polymers prepared by the hydroxyl free radical polymerization of perfluoroheptene. The reactions of thionyl chloride and 2, 6-dimethlphenol are discussed.
