Abstract : Gas generant compositions comprised of a high nitrogen content solid and an energetic polymer, which release high levels of nitrogen and minimum levels of toxic and flammable gases. An object of this invention is to provide gas generating compositions which release high levels of nitrogen and minimum levels of toxic and flammable gases. Another object of this inventions is to provide gas generating compositions which are liquid castable. A further object of this invention is to provide gas generating compositions which give a higher yield of permanent or non-condensable gases and which allows for tailoring of the burning rate. The presently disclosed gas generant compositions are formulated from high nitrogen content compound (solids) with energetic polymers.
