The results of research on the deflagration of the solid-propellant oxidizers, hydrazine perchlorate HP and hydrazine diperchlorate HDP, are reported and discussed. Each compound was found to be unique physically and chemically, in both its low-temperature thermal decomposition and its high- temperature deflagration behavior. HP and HDP are white solids of crystal densities 1.939 and 2.21 gcc, and melting points of 141 and 191C, respectively. The following aspects of the combustion process were studied The deflagration rate as a function of pressure and the effects of catalysts the flame temperature and the temperature profile through the combustion wave quenching, thermal decomposition, and chemical behavior. In addition, vaporization rates of HP were measured.
