Several mixtures containing nitromethane were tested in a calorimetric vessel with the aim of determining their ignition and burning behavior. As ignition at normal pressure was incomplete, a pressure of 8 bar in an argon atmosphere was applied in most cases. Under these ignition conditions it was possible to ignite all liquid propellant mixtures successfully. The quality of the ignition and combustion process was evaluated via gas analysis in a manner enabling us to compare experimentally obtained reaction products with theoretically calculated values.
