Abstract : This report addresses the fire suppression mechanism survey and candidate survey for advanced streaming agents. These surveys led to the identification of chemical families from which an initial list or Broad List of Candidates was developed. The Broad List was comprised of specific chemicals, which were selected by identifying the simplest "parent" molecule within each of the chemical families and making variations of the parent to incorporate desirable features that increase flame suppression capabilities and reduce atmospheric lifetimes. Information on the Broad List was collected focusing on physical/chemical properties, toxicity, manufacturability, environmental issues, and other relevant information. The chemical families identified include brominated alkenes, aromatics, ketones, aldehydes, esters, carboxylic acids, alcohols, ethers, amines, amides, morpholines, and silicon compounds as well as fluoroiodocarbons, metallics, sulfur and sulfur nitrogen compounds, phosphonitriles, epoxides, and nitrosyl compounds. Representative chemicals from each family will be tested for fire suppression capabilities.
