Abstract
The objective of this Phase II research is to perform advanced testing of second-generation solvent replacements used for cleaning hydrocarbon and fluorocarbon residues from oxygen systems. The advanced testing includes determining flammability,autogenous ignition temperature in oxygen, atmospheric impact, toxicity, and characterization of the thermophysical properties of the candidate solvents. The cleaning effectiveness of the solvents in an actual oxidizer system will also be tested.Manufacturability of the candidate solvents will also be addressed. Successful completion of Phase II will result in the development of a suitable CFC-113 replacement solvent that is ready for use in commercial and military applications.
