Abstract:

A laboratory study was conducted to resolve conflicting published data on chemical compatibility of hydrazine with gold. Hydrazine and unsdimethyldrazinehydrazine 5050 were tested for compatibility with several metals including a goldnickel 8218 brazing alloy which is specified for use in several missile propellant systems designed for hydrazine and for hydrazine fuel blends. Gold, nickel, and the goldnickel brazing alloy decompose hydrazine catalytically.
