What are Hydrazines?
CAS#: Hydrazine 000302-01-2
1,1-Dimethylhydrazine 000057-14-7 1,2-Dimethylhydrazine 000540-73-8
Hydrazines are clear, colorless liquids with an ammonia-like
odor. There are many kinds of hydrazine compounds, including
hydrazine, 1,1-dimethylhydrazine, and 1,2-dimethylhydrazine.
Small amounts of hydrazine occur naturally in plants. Most hydrazines
are manufactured for use as rocket propellants and fuels, boiler
water treatments, chemical reactants, medicines, and in cancer
research. Hydrazines are highly reactive and easily catch fire.
