Abstract : The present invention relates to an improved propellant formulation and to the method of preparation thereof. In the field of rocket propellants there exists a great number of homogeneous propellants using nitrocellulose as the basic ingredient to give them the structural characteristics of a plastic which can be processed in many shapes. If the propellant contains nitroglycerin as a second combustible ingredient, the propellant is generally known as a double base propellant.
