Abstract:

Several U.S. missile and satellite systems or their components use hydrazine as a fuel. Hydrazine is mutagenic and is a suspected human carcinogen. Replacing this dangerous and difficult-to-handle material would improve prospects for human health and the environment, as well as reduce life cycle costs. This report assesses the known and predicted toxicological profiles of hydrazine and seven propellant components that may be used as replacements.
