Abstract : The properties and methods of analysis for hydrazine are reviewed and evaluated relative to the study of hydrazine degradations. Previous work on the environmental degradation of hydrazine is reviewed. Experimental studies are described for the degradation of hydrazine by diazoluminomelanin, transition metals, hydrogen peroxide, and clay. Ion chromatography was used as the analysis method.
