Space propulsion system produces required thrust for satellites and space launch vehicles by using chemical reactions of a liquid fuel and a liquid oxidizer typically. For example, monomethylhydrazine-dinitrogen tetroxide, liquid hydrogen-liquid oxygen and RP-1-liquid oxygen are conventional combinations of liquid propellants used for the liquid propulsion system. Among several liquid propellants, the monomethylhydrazine is expecially preferred for a satellite fuel due to its better storability in liquid phase during a relatively long mission period under a space environment. Thus, a development importance of a bipropellant system using the monomethylhydrazine fuel is recognized recently as the national space program proceeds on a large scale. The objective of the present study is to review a foreign research trend of a thermal decomposition reaction of monomethyhydrazine to understand a fundamental basis of its chemical reaction to prepare for domestic development in future.
