The importance of short ignition delays (IDs) in hypergolic propellants has led to intensive investigation of the highly exothermic chemical processes occurring in the preignition stage [1-4]. Although both physical and chemical factors affect the overall ignition delay, the spontaneous ignition is primarily the result of highly exothermic reactions. In hypergolic systems, a variety of exothermic reactions occur simultaneously, and their individual contribution to the overall exothermicity is virtually unknown.
