MON
Mixed Oxides of Nitrogen - Nitric oxide (NO) is a low-boiling cryogenic gas. Both the liquid and the solid are blue. Solutions of NO in nitrogen tetroxide sharply depress the freezing point of the high-melting oxidizer. The mechanism of depression is believed to involve the formation of N2O3, which is soluble in nitrogen tetroxide. Solutions are called mixed oxides of nitrogen (MON), and have been used as oxidizers for liquid-rocket engines. Various concentrations have been considered. However, the high vapor pressure of MON limits the concentration of NO in N2O4 to about 30 per cent. Aside from the high vapor pressure of MON, the material is quite similar to nitrogen tetroxide.

Density: 1.370 g/cc.
