Abstract:

Results of three studies on the ambient temperature autoxidation of hydrazine vapor are presented. These studies show that the main reaction is N2H4 O2 N2 2H2O, with ammonia being produced as a side product. The rate of the main reaction, as well as the side reaction producing ammonia, is greatly influenced by the surface to volume ratio and the surface composition of the reaction vessel. Hydrazine half life varied from a few minutes to several hours depending upon experimental conditions.
