Abstract:

Dependence of the thermal decomposition of hydrazine upon temperature, concentration, pressure and oxygen proportion between 1100K and 1400K was established by incident and reflected shock techniques 2M3.5. UV-extinction coefficients of hydrazine was measured up to 1350K, those of ammonia up to 2600K. A simple innovation in shock tube methods facilitates determination of reaction products and was applied to the pyrolysis of hydrazine. The occurence of HN and preliminary results about the thermal decomposition of ammonia at temperatures of 2100K - 2600K are reported. The reaction of nitrogen dioxide and hydrazine was investigated in a flow system. A review of hydrazine literature is given. Author
