Fuels and New Propellants is a compendium of papers presented at a conference on Fuel and New Propellants by the Federazione Associazioni Scientifiche e Tecniche, sponsored by the Consiglio Nazionale Delle Ricerche, held at Milan, Italy in June 1963. The book presents the researches made on the scientific, technical, and industrial applications of new and improved fuels and propellants. The collection contains papers that deal with residual fuels and the marine diesel engine; the characteristics of processes for the production of high octane fuels; liquid and solid propellants for space rockets; and technical problems in the production of solid and liquid propellants. Petrochemists, chemists, and researchers in the field of fuels and propellants will find this text interesting and insightful.
