Don't have a list, but am intrigued...

Do I understand this correctly?

	Hypergolic reaction - happens when A + B results in ignition.
	This may occur because of an exothermic reaction in which:
		A's autoignition temp is reached
		B's autoignition temp is reached
		Or product from A + B has its autoignition temp reached

Are there other possibilities here for achieving ignition without the exter
nal ignition source?

Does anyone have a list of chemicals that when combined cause hypergolic re
actions? Just wondering because this warning came with our ICP, but have no
t been able to locate a list of common ones.
