Hydrzine is used to destroy residual oxygen in boiler feed and condensatwater, for
example in power plants, to avoid corrosion of the boiler casing. Reaction products are merely nitrogen
gas and water, thus the salt load of the water is kept low.
Because of its highly reactive properties, hydrazine is also used as fuel in aviation
Hydrazine is toxic, has shown to be cancerous in animal tests and has a highly toxic
effect on water organisms. Hydrazine can be absorbed through the skin. Therefore, water and wate water
with potential content of hydrazine must be determined.
