Abstract : Infrared spectra of 48 energetic materials, propellant ingredients, and propellant formulations have been measured using a Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometer employing photoacoustic (PA) detection. Spectra are divided among the categories of propellant formulations, neat energetic materials, binders, plasticizers, stabilizers and others. Spectra of propellant formulations have been annotated, where appropriate, to indicate features due to individual ingredients.
