A paper presented before the 137th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society at Cleveland, Ohio, April 8, 1960. The Soviets publish the results of their scientific investigations in the popular press, as well as in a multiplicity of scientific and industrial journals. Although they publish widely on combustion, detonation, explosion, and industrial explosives, Soviet output of original material on rocket propellants is seriously limited by security restrictions. Nevertheless, examination of the Russian literature reveals (1) a thorough familiarity with Western developments and (2) considerable research activity on both solid and liquid propellants of the conventional and nonconventional variety. Among the propellants of special interest are pentaborane, ammonium nitrate, ozone, hydrogen superoxide, and frozen radicals.
