Abstract

The use of energetic nano-sized powders for combustion and rocket propulsion was described. Nano-sized energetic metals and boron particles possess desirable combustion characteristics such as high heats of combustion and fast energy release rates. Various passivation procedures were developed for synthesizing nano-particles of different shape and sizes. It was shown that the use of energetic nano-particles could increase the propulsion performance of future propellants and fuels.
