The chemical propellants form a special class of compounds. Some of the members of this class are usually not considered as being important enough to warrant special discussion in chemistry courses. For this reason it appears to be of interest to present a catalogue of representative chemicals with emphasis on the particular characteristics which make them useful or usable rocket propellants.
