A propellant composition comprising an admixture of a first hydrogen rich material and a second metal material which is capable of reacting exothermically with the first material. The ratio of the first material to the second material is selected such that the exothermic reaction forms a solid phase and a gas phase which contains substantial amounts of hydrogen. Preferably, the first hydrogen rich material comprises a material capable of providing nitrogen upon decomposition thereof, and the second metal material comprises a material capable of reacting ...
A method of propelling a projectile, comprising rapidly decomposing a charge of a propellant in a confined volume having an outlet opening, wherein a projectile is positioned within said volume between said charge and said opening, said propellant comprising ammonium azide, and a second material which comprises at least one of a metal, metal hydride, or silicon, where the ratio of ammonium azide to the second material is selected such that, upon reaction, the propellant forms a solid nitride and a gas phase coning substantial amounts of hydrogen.
