Rocket propellant catalyst %
Posted 06 September 2004 - 06:43 PM
I also have some red and black iron oxide. Can these be used as catalysts in conjunction with the MnO2 or would they have no extra affect on the burn rate?
I was also wondering if MnO2 can be used for anything else.

It's probably better to avoid using chlorate comps except where you really need to (for colours and possibly burst charges), and potassium nitrate will make very impressive rockets, and much more safely. It's also cheaper and easier to get. Iron oxide can be safely used as a catalyst in nitrate based "candy propellants," if required. See www.nakka-rocketry.net for a lot of information on this.
