Further measurements of the rate of deflagration of pressed strands of hydrazine diperchlorate at elevated pressures have been made. The data are erratic. The effect of copper chromite catalyst on the deflagration of hydrazine diperchlorate at atmospheric pressure has been examined at a higher catalyst content. Flame temperatures have been calculated for one, ten and one hundred atmospheres pressure and are fairly constant at 1600 K. Attempts at measurement of the flame temperature by means of fine Pt-Pt, 10 Rh thermocouples have been unsuccessful--apparently because of catalysis by the metals of condensed phase reactions. Exploratory experiments have been performed with ammonium perchlorate, hydrazine perchlorate and hydrazine diperchlorate on the deflagration of spheres of these oxidizers at atmospheric pressure in fuel gas streams.
