Abstract:

The distinct possibility that hydrazine fuels would not be available in the quantities required by Air Force and NASA during the late 1970s and early 1980s motivated the Air Force to support research on alternative processes which would have the potential of minimum environmental impact. This is a report of the study of the production of MMH monomethyl hydrazine and UDMH unsymmetrical dimethyl hydrazine via the urea process. Primary effort of the program was devoted to the study of the chemistry of the reactions. Engineering design data were developed for several of the unit processes and have permitted a preliminary process design and economic evaluation. Additional engineering data will be required to design a pilot plant.
