Abstract : The objective of this program to determine the heats of formation of selected chemical compounds related to rocket propulsion by applying the methods of calorimetry. The calorimetric techniques included combustion, solution, and reaction calorimetry. The accomplishments of the program are presented in chronological order and rather than repeat the details of all phases of the work, references are made to the appropriate quarterly, semi-annual, or annual report. Thermochemical studies were made on the following elements and compounds: Lithium Aluminum Boron, LiAl, AlB2, LiAlH4, Aluminum Hydride, Li3AlH6, B2O3 (Crystalline), B2O3 (Amorphous), H3BO3, BCl3, Aluminum Borohydride, and Fluorammonium Perchlorate.
