Abstract : A mixed, intramolecular perchlorate salt, having a carboranyl moiety and two ferrocenyl moieties, is used as a partial replacement for ammonium perchlorate to achieve ultrahigh buring rates for propellants. The perchlorate salt when incorporated into a propellant composition contributes to the oxidizer function, and in addition, since both boron and iron are present, two mechanisms for burning rate catalysis are exploited. The described compound, carboranyldiferrocenylmethyl perchlorate, obviates the need for incorporating the burning rate catalysts separately. (Author)
