ClO3F/Hydrazine
ClO3F/Hydrazine propellant. Perchloryl fluoride was another of the extremely reactive and toxic oxidizers tested in the United States in the late 1950's. this was the highest performance propellant using ClO3F. Hydrazine (N2H4) produced better specific impulse when used with ClF3 than the UDMH fuel commonly used in other applications.

Specific impulse: 295 s. Specific impulse sea level: 295 s.

Optimum Oxidizer to Fuel Ratio: 1.42. Temperature of Combustion: 3,390 deg K. Density: 1.22 g/cc. Oxidizer Density: 1.430 g/cc. Oxidizer Freezing Point: -146 deg C. Oxidizer Boiling Point: -47 deg C. Fuel Density: 1.008 g/cc. Fuel Freezing Point: 2.00 deg C. Fuel Boiling Point: 113 deg C.
