Abstract

The theoretical chemical and electrospray performance of [Bmim][dca], [Bmim][NO3], or [Emim][EtSO4] mixed with HAN in aqueous solution for dual mode chemical monopropellant/bipropellant and electrical electrospray rocket propulsion have been investigated. A ternary mixture comprised of 80 percent HAN, 20 percent of each ionic liquid fuel, and no water yielded the maximum specific impulse and chamber temperature: 290 seconds and 2700 Kelvin, respectively. The specific impulse was computed for a 1000 V accelerating voltage. For a binary mixture of [Bmim][dca] and HAN the upper limit on the specific impulse performance was 4655 to 6683 seconds and the lower bound was 2567 to 3745 seconds. For [Bmim][NO] and Han the limits were 4743 to 6683 seconds and 2595 to 3745 seconds, respectively. For [Emim][EtSO4] and HAN the bounds were 4128 to 6683 seconds and 2380 to 3745 seconds, respectively.
