This description of c-stoff is FUNDAMENTALY wrong. C-STOFF was a catalyst solution consisting of a saturated solution of calcium permanganate in water. It functioned to decompose the HYDROGEN PEROXIDE in experimental or test versions of the HWK 109 rocket motors. Z-STOFF is the chemial formulation described on this page. This was the FUEL for the rocket NOT the OXYDIZER - the oxygen for burning the mixture of CH4 and N2H4 to CO2, H2O, NO2 being provided from the catalytic decomposition of the H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide).

I think someone has greatly confused all this "Stoff" all throughout wikipedia. According to Hellmuth Walter himself ("History of German Guided Missiles Development"), M-Stoff was a mix of hydrazine hydratee and mathanol. Z-Stoff was a permanginate catylist. T-Stoff was hydrogen peroxide. I noticed that Walter spells hydrazine "hydracine". DonPMitchell (talk) 06:36, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
