I am looking to simulate in software a rocket engine using this propellent combination. Activation energy is one of the inputs to the simulation software. What is the activation energy of a chlorine trifluoride and hydrazine reaction? $$\ce{3 N2H4 + 4 ClF3 -> 3 N2 + 12 HF + 2Cl2}$$ Is there a online chemistry source or book which might contain this value? If it has not been measured is there a way to calculate this value based on the properties of the chemicals involved? How to get the value is less important thatthan a number I can enter into a text file. Searching for papers on the subject mostly results in unrelated chemistry homework examples. The closest thing thing I found to an answer was looking up chemicals in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Chemical Reactions Database. The database includes data for hydrazine reactions and chlorine trifluoride reactions separately, but not with each other. $$\ce{ClF3 -> *F + ClF2}$$ reaction has $$E_a = 118 \frac{kJ}{mol}$$. Is it reasonable to assume this might be the first step if it is a radical reaction? Chlorine trifluoride was once tested in a rocket engine as an oxidizer for hydrazine.
