2015_09/2015Ionic Ferrocene-Based Burning-Rate Catalysts with Polycyano Anions: Synthesis, Structural Characterization, Migration, and Catalytic Effects during Combustion (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 9/2015)

The cover picture shows how to develop low-migratory ferrocene-based burning-rate catalysts (BRC) for the next generation of rocket propellants. When the pieces of the “puzzle” fit perfectly, the combustion catalysts have optimal qualities, and the fuels last longer. The polycyano-based ionic ferrocene compounds described in this study exhibit high catalytic activity in the thermal degradation of ammonium perchlorate. Details are discussed in the article by G. Zhang et al. on p. 1496 ff. For more on the story behind the cover research, see the Cover Profile.
