Heptyl (Гептил) is Russian toxic missile fuel, reported to cause problms with its storage, using, leaking and the resulting ecological disasters.[3][4][5]. Such a Heptil is based on \(\rm NH_2 N (CH_3)_2 \).

Also, term heptyl may denote any of many isomeric univalent hydrocarbon radicals, C7H15, formally derived from heptane by the loss of a hydrogen atom. [6].

In TORI, the only first meaning is used (in order to describe contamination by the Russian militaries).

Chemical content

It seems, usually, Heptyl appears as mixture of the following chemicals [3]: Unsymmetrical dimethylhydrazine, Kerosene and nitrogen tetroxide (dinytrogen tetroxyde, oxydizer),

Unsymmetrical dimethylhydrazine seems to be most toxic component of the fuel.

2020.10.01.Kamchatka disaster

Heptyl and/or Samin) seem to be main contaminants, that caused the 2020.10.01.Kamchatka disaster [7].

In report [8] by Rosprirodnadzor, concentrations of Heptyl and Samin‎‎ are not estimated even by orders of magnitude. This observation is considered as indirect confirmation of the hypothesis about heptyl and samin as main contaminants, although hypotheses about leaks of components of a chemical weapon or unstable isotopes also remain; estimates of their concentrations also are not presented in the Russian oficial publications (or the access to these publications is blocked by the Roskomnadzor).

Contamination had been reported to occur in many rivers, lakes, bays and beaches of Kamchatka peninsula. The disaster cannot be interpreted as result of a single accidental release of toxic chemicals. It looks as the intentional, sinchronyzed sabotage of many commanders of various military bases; perhaps, with goal to poison the population of Kamchatka, with involvement of officials of Roskomnadzor and Rosprirodnadzor, in order not to allow the information about the contamination to be distributed before it scales-up to the ecological disaster. Several sources of the missile fuel can be used to provide the level of contamination, desired by the organizers.

Heptyl and other contaminants could come from the Kamchatka Missile Base ("Kluchi", 56.309, 160.841 ) by the Kamchatka river and to drift with the oceanic water along the Kamchatka coast to the Khalakryrsky beach and Avaha Bay.

Another source is the military polygon Radygino [2][9] near Avacha Bay.

One more source of the missile fuel as contaminant is shown at the map of the Avacha Bay by Wikimapia at 52.9573,158.4352 , just at the East side of the Avacha Bay.

Synchronization of release of the missile fuel (including heptyl) by the Russian military commanders can be explained also in terms of the Broken windows theory [10]: the commanders observe the sabotage from side of Rosprirodnadzor and kryshevanie of contamination from side of Roskomnadzor; they see colleagues, contaminating Kamchatka; so, the commanders have seduction to join the "club of poisoners", who contaminate Kamchatka, and worse the contamination, dropping even more toxic substances into rivers and bays of Kamchatka.

Appearance of contaminants and, perhaps, heptyl at rivers and bays of Kamchatka should not look strange: there are many military bases with toxic materials; the total corruption of the Russian administration makes impossible to control them, keep them in save conditions. Such a property of a corrupted society is characterized with epithets Upper Volta with missiles and Monkey with grenade (Oбезьяна с гранатой).

A nationalist political party in Kazakhstan has called on the government to ban future launches of Russian Proton-M carrier rockets from the Baikonur Cosmodrome over concerns that they spew a particularly toxic form of rocket fuel into the Kazakh steppe. // The Proton-M is the workhorse of Russia's unmanned and commercial space programs. It uses a type of fuel called heptyl, which is a highly corrosive combination of hydrazine and nitrogen tetroxide, topped off with kerosene.

A failed Proton-M rocket which exploded seconds after lift-off caused $85 million of damage, say Kazakh officials at the Baikonur launch site. A bill has been submitted to the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos), said the Kazakhstan Ministry of the Environment & Water in a statement. The rocket was carrying 600 tons of highly toxic heptyl rocket fuel// The Baikonur cosmodrome is the largest space-launch complex in the world, and as well as being the base from which Yuri Gagarin and the other space pioneers lifted off, is also home to many of Russia’s ballistic missile silos.// Russia rents the 100 km wide site and has a lease on the complex until 2050. Russia pays the Kazakhs $115 million annually in lease payments.

Officials later confirmed the surfers had sustained mild burns to their corneas.
  10. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broken_windows_theory The broken windows theory is a criminological theory that states that visible signs of crime, anti-social behavior, and civil disorder create an urban environment that encourages further crime and disorder, including serious crimes. The theory suggests that policing methods that target minor crimes, such as vandalism, loitering, public drinking, jaywalking and fare evasion, help to create an atmosphere of order and lawfulness, thereby preventing more serious crimes.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unsymmetrical_dimethylhydrazine Unsymmetrical dimethylhydrazine (UDMH; 1,1-dimethylhydrazine ; heptyl) is a chemical compound with the formula H2NN(CH3)2 that is used as a rocket propellant. It is a colorless liquid, with a sharp, fishy, ammonia-like smell typical for organic amines. Samples turn yellowish on exposure to air and absorb oxygen and carbon dioxide. It is miscible with water, ethanol, and kerosene. In concentration between 2.5% and 95% in air, its vapors are flammable. It is not sensitive to shock. Symmetrical dimethylhydrazine, 1,2-dimethylhydrazine is also known but is not as useful.[4]
