Comparative assessment of toxicity of unsymmetrical dimethyl hydrazine and its decomposition products by bioassay methods

, , , &
The toxicity of liquid rocket propellant unsymmetrical dimethylhydrazine (UDMH) and its decomposition products was studied by methods of bioassay. It was shown that transformation of UDMH leads to products which are less toxic than the initial exotoxicant. For example, the toxicity of formic acid dimethylhydrazide, structural analogue of UDMH, which is mistaken for UDMH on the places of old spills, is 20-100000 times lower. As a result, the place of pollution by rocket fuel becomes...
