Global Hydrazine Market Overview
Hydrazine is a colorless flammable inorganic liquid compound with ammonia like odor. Hydrazine is highly toxic in nature. The compound is highly unstable as well unless handled in solution form. The common use of hydrazine is as a precursor to blowing agents. The gas-forming agent in air bags is sodium azide which is produced from hydrazine by reaction with sodium nitrite. They are used as fuels in rocket and spacecraft powered engines. Hydrazine is a strong reducing agent. Thus it is used for corrosion control in hot water heating systems and boilers, for metal plating, and for reducing noble metal catalysts and unsaturated bonds in organic compounds. It is also an oxidizing agent. Hydrazine is the initial compound for several derivatives; amid which, foaming agents for antioxidants, polymers, plastics, polymer cross-linking and chain extending agents, as well as biologically active pesticides, herbicides, plant growth regulators and pharmaceuticals are significant.
Thus, hydrazine is utilized for many industrial applications including preparation of polymer foams, polymerization catalysts, agrochemicals and the gas used in air bags. Several vital pharmaceuticals are built on hydrazine and its derivatives. Hydrazine is also utilized in various rocket fuels, in nuclear and conventional power plants, in organic synthesis and in fuel cells as a safer alternative to hydrogen.
