The catalytic effects of Fe2O3, Ni2O3, MnO2, and Co2O3 transition metal oxides (TMO) on the combustion of polystyrene and carboxyl-terminated polybutadiene were investigated. The order of activity of TMO's was explained by the presence of Co and absence of Fe and Ni in their lattice systems along with a reduced electron-transfer process; in systems which induce the metal ions to enter the lattice, the electron transfer process is much greater. The thermal decomposition of ammonium perchlorate propellants was enhanced to a greater extent by Co2O3 and MnO2 than by Fe2O3 and Ni2O3.
