Abstract:

The catalytic effect of metallic ions at their reported maximum environmental water concentrations were studied in the deoxygenation by hydrazine in aqueous solutions. FeIII, FeII, ZnII, CoII, and NiII ions did not significantly enhance the deoxygenation of aqueous solutions. The thermal effects of the kinetic deoxygenation rate for hydrazine MMH, and UDMH by the catalytic reactions with copper were studied. Previous work at this Lab established a predictive model for the deoxygenation kinetic rate constant as a function of propellant and copper concentration. This was expanded to include a thermal ratio parameter.
