Hydrazine

02/23/2008 11:54 AM

Yes I know the whole story about NASA and the shoot down, and all that.

We deal with many chemicals way more nasty than this Hydrazine stuff.

But we are interested in producing some small derivitives of it or it's sister chemicals. Such as,

monomethylhydrazine, CH3NHNH2

and

unsymmetrical dimethylhydrazine (CH3)2NNH2 (also known as UDMH)


and

dinitrogen tetroxide, N2O4, also known as nitrogen tetroxide.

I think Ace is enquiring...
Is your post a question? A statement ? or what?

It isn't at all obvious!
At least not to either of us....

Has anyone explained how the product of hydrazine and atmospheric oxygen is toxic?Or, why/should there be such a big news event covering the "toxic" removal?

Dealing with chemicals far more toxic than this stuff, I'm 99.9% sure this whole shoot it down was a Military thing to keep the secrets about that Bird a secret. Period.

Yes i agree it's nasty stuff, and dangerous, but not in any extreme nature more than others out there.

We were just wondering how difficult it is to manufacture. And what the actual processes of the variations of it's sister formulas to manufacturer are?

High Joe. Normally, when I see a "how do make some really toxic explosive sh*t," question, I figure, Not my job to tell you.

But your prior posts are congruent with your story, and many of these links are from Uncle Sam, so have at it.

But be careful. One of my friend from High school's little brothers has half a hand because he tried to do what he saw his brother and I doing in my garage lab back in the 1960's.

I remember trying to run out of an undergrad organic chemistry lab once upon a time when the idiot beside me applied steam in stead of ice bath to whatever nitrile reaction we were supposed to be doing. The full professor grabbed me by the collar and said I was needed to help get the lab back in control... which we did

Lesson learned.
