Recent applications of transition metal nanoferrites as catalyst in thermal decomposition of ammonium perchlorate (AP) and combustion of composite solid propellant (CSP), have been reviewed. Catalytic applications include the use of mainly cobalt, nickel, copper, zinc, manganese, cadmium nanoferrites, as well as their mixed-metal combinations. The nanoferrites are obtained mainly by wet-chemical, sol-gel, solvo-thermal, auto-combustion and co-precipitation methods. Addition of nanoferrites to AP led to shifting of the high temperature decomposition peak toward lower temperatures which shows their catalytic activity. The burning rates of CSPs have also been enhanced by these nanoferrites.
