    The Effect of Additives on Solid Rocket Propellant Characteristics

    Vesna Rodić, BSc (Eng)1) Mirjana Petrić, MSc (Eng)1) Apart from the basic components, such as oxidizer, mostly ammonium perchlorate (AP) and binder, as cured polymer containing plasticizer, bonding agent, antioksidant, curing rate modifier etc. which regulate physico-chemical and mechanical characteristics, composite rocket propellants (CRP) comprise versatile additives. Some of them function as burning rate modifiers,Read more →

    Fullerenes for Photovoltaic and Bioscience Applications

    Michael D. Diener TDA Research 12345 W52nd Ave • Wheat Ridge, CO 80033 Introduction Twenty-five years ago, it was discovered that carbon vapor preferentially condenses into an exceedingly stable cluster with 60 carbon atoms (C60), and it was hypothesized that the 60 atoms were arranged as the vertices of a truncated icosahedron, aka a soccerRead more →

    FDCA & Next Generation Polyester

    From Plant Based materials to FDCA and PEF 2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid(FDCA) developed by FCAD, can be used as a replacement for terephthalic acid (TA), a petroleum-based monomer that is primarily used to produce PET. Because of the enormous potential of Furanics-based materials the chemical conversion of plant-based carbohydrates into FDCA has been a hot topic ofRead more →

    10-MDP

    Application MDP (10-Methacryloyloxydecyl dihydrogen phosphate) convinces users by its special monomer structure: This phosphate monomer was extremely effective for enamel, dentin and on metal alloys. Consequently, the material including the MDP monomer, was introduced as a high-performance adhesive resin cement for the cementation to tooth structure and to metals. The impressive success of encouraged manyRead more →
