Abstract:

This is the final report of a theoretical research investigation which was undertaken to identify new propellants with revolutionary performance. A general method of locating new candidates was developed. By use of this method, several candidates were identified, including N6 and N4, which are predicted to have better performance specific impulse than liquid hydrogen and oxygen. Condensed phase properties of azides and promising propellant candidates were also determined by use of a simulated annealing program.
