Abstract:

Long-term storability and decomposition kinetics of monopropellant formulations containing hydrazine, hydrazine azide, and ammonia were investigated. These propellants were found to be incompatible with steel alloys but quite compatible with 2319 aluminum, 1100 aluminum, and Ti-6Al-4V. In addition, the nature of the decomposition mechanisms and the stoichiometries involved were investigated. Methods of improving the compatibility with stainless steels were tested. Author
