Abstract

In this talk, the effects and applications of hydrogen peroxide in research areas of combustion, energy, and propulsion are revisited and reviewed, especially its role as an energy-saving combustion enhancer and a non-toxic green propellant for satellites and hybrid Rockets. Recently, the research on hydrogen peroxide has been re-emphasized due to the stronger demand for cleaner energy and non-toxic environmental green propulsion. The current results, status, difficulties, and challenges of hydrogen peroxide research in combustion, energy, and propulsion are reviewed and discussed. The feasible new applications of hydrogen peroxide in energy and propulsion for industry and space technology development are proposed, exclusively, as the combustion enhancer for biomass and the green propellant for satellite and hybrid rockets.
