Abstract : This research covers the theoretical examination of real and hypothetical propellants by molecular orbital theory. It also concerns the fundamental physical chemistry of fluorinated propellant ingredients with the emphasis on chemical kinetics. Thus, systems involving the OF bond, OF2 and HF are being investigated by a variety of means. (Author)
