Abstract:

The authors have studied the catalystic effect of Fe2O3 on the combustion of mixtures of ammonium perchlorate with five different fuels and of certain mixtures with perchlorates of formamidine, potassium, and tetramethyl ammonium. In all cases the effectiveness of Fe2O3 decreases with an increase in the combustion rate of the original composition.
