2-Dimethylaminoethylazide (DMAZ) is a liquid fuel being investigated for use as a spacecraft propellent to replace the toxic, carcinogenic monomethylhydrazine.[1] It is a member of the competitive impulse non-carcinogenic hypergol (CINCH) family which were assessed as a replacement for hydrazine-derived propellants.[2][3]
