Abstract : The burning rate-pressure slopes of smokeless solid propellant compositions containing butyl rubber, polytetrafluoroethylene and ammonium perchlorate, are altered by adding triphenylphosphine. Also, the burning rate of regular propellants which are not smokeless e.g., which additionally contain aluminum, are altered.
