Abstract : A series of catalysts were evaluated for effectiveness in initiating hydrazine decomposition near room temperature by means of differential thermal analysis. The most promising catalyst, Girdler T-323 with 50 percent pre-reduced cobalt on a kieselguhr support, was capable of initiating decomposition at 33 C and re-start at 53 C. Even with this catalyst, the ammonia produced can be expected to exhibit strong ADSORBTION PROPERTIES AND CONSTITUTE A CATALYST POISON FOR SUCCESSIVE RE-STARTS. A catalyst is needed to complete the decomposition of hydrazine to nitrogen and hydrogen. (Author)
