Abstract:

Both basic and applied research continued on the thermodynamic properties of currently used high energy fuels and of possible constituents of high energy fuels of the future. Enthalpies of combustion were measured for two ramjet fuels currently in use, and differential scanning calorimetry evaluated heat capacities of four such fuels. Enthalpies of combustion were measured for two pure organic compounds having the energetic cyclobutane ring in their molecular structure, and the study of compounds that may have higher combustion energies because of steric interaction of adjacent alkyl groups was continued with vapor pressure study on dialkylnaphthalene.
