Abstract

The research towards the development of new propellants aims to ensure not only their high performance, but also high environmental compatibility and low toxicity. Considerable attention is paid to the development of hypergolic propellant compositions, the use of which markedly simplifies the engine design and rocket system operation and provides the possibility of their repeated use. Hydrogen peroxide is a promising and nontoxic oxidant. The review summarizes the research and development data concerning the design and application of hypergolic rocket propellants involving hydrogen peroxide, starting from the 1930s and up to now. The data presented in the review could be useful for specialists engaged in the development of prospective high-performance green fuels.
