Abstract : A solid propellant composition that employs methyltricarboranylmethyl perchlorate as a replacement for some of the ammonium perchlorate and for all of the carboranyl plasticizers achieves both improved burning rate and improved mechanical properties. In addition to methyltricarboranylmethyl perchlorate, the propellant of this invention comprises a diisocyanate cross-linking agent, hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene binder, an interfacial bonding agent and aluminum metal fuel.
