Guanidine nitrate is a high energy fuel used in some gas generator and solid rocket propellant applications. The melting point of a solid is the temperature range at which it changes state from solid to Liquid. Solubility is the characteristic Physical property referring to the ability of a given substance the Solute, to dissolve in a Solvent. Water is a common Chemical substance that is essential for the survival of all known forms of Life.

## Overview

Guanidine nitrate is the salt formed from guanidine and nitric acid. A salt, in Chemistry, is defined as the product formed from the neutralisation reaction of Acids and bases. Guanidine is a Crystalline compound of strong Alkalinity formed by the Oxidation of Guanine. Nitric acid ( H[[nitrate NO3]] also known as Aqua fortis and spirit of nitre, is a highly corrosive and It has the chemical formula C(NH2)3NO3. It has been used as a monopropellant in the Jetex engine for model airplanes. Monopropellants are Propellants composed of chemicals or mixtures of chemicals which can be stored in a single container with some degree of safety The Jetex engine was a type of solid-fuel Rocket engine produced for use as a powerplant for Model aircraft. Model aircraft are flying or non-flying models of existing or imaginary Aircraft, often scaled down versions of full size planes using materials such as balsa It is attractive because it has a high gas output and low flame temperature. It has a relatively high monopropellant specific impulse of 177 seconds ($1.7 kN\ x\ \tfrac {s}{kg}$). Specific impulse (usually abbreviated I sp is a way to describe the efficiency of rocket and jet engines [1]

## Safety

Hazards:

• May explosively decompose on shock, friction, or concussion.
• May explode on heating.
• On combustion, forms toxic and corrosive fumes including nitric acid and nitrogen oxides.
• The substance is a strong oxidant and reacts with combustible and reducing materials.

Routes of exposure:

• The substance can be absorbed into the body by ingestion.
• A nuisance-causing concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly when dispersed, especially if powdered.

Effects of short-term exposure:

• The substance is severely irritating to the eyes and the skin.
• Harmful if inhaled, swallowed or absorbed through the skin.
