Due to the toxic nature of common high-performance rocket propellant combinations (such
as monomethyl-hydrazine/di-nitrogen tetroxide), there is now growing interest in so-called
'green' propellants. In response to this, and in the continuation of existing research, a small
demonstration bi-propellant rocket-engine was designed, built and tested using
homogeneous catalysis of highly stabilised hydrogen peroxide. An investigation into
suitable fuels was conducted, and candidates selected. Auto-ignition was successfully
achieved, demonstrating the robustness of the propellant combination.
