Nitrous oxide can be used as an oxidizer in a rocket motor. This has the advantages over other oxidisers in that it is not only non-toxic, but also, due to its stability at room temperature, easy to store and relatively safe to carry on a flight.
One of the major problems of using nitrous oxide in a reciprocating engine is that it can produce enough power to damage or destroy the engine. Very large power increases are possible, and if the mechanical structure of the engine is not properly reinforced, the engine may be severely damaged or destroyed during this kind of operation. It is very important with nitrous oxide augmentation of petrol engines to maintain proper operating temperatures and fuel levels to prevent "pre-ignition", or "detonation". Most problems that are associated with nitrous do not come from mechanical failure due to the power increases. Since nitrous allows a much denser charge into the cylinder it dramatically increases cylinder pressures. The increased pressure and temperature can cause problems such as melting the piston or valves. It may also crack or warp the piston or head and cause pre-ignition due to uneven heating.

Nitrous oxide can be used as an oxidizer in a rocket motor.
It is also used as an oxidizer in rocketry and in motor racing to increase the
power output of engines.
It is approved for use as a food additive (also known as E942), specifically as
an aerosol spray propellant.
It is used in surgery and dentistry for its anesthetic and analgesic effects.
It is known as "laughing gas" due to the euphoric effects of inhaling it, a
property that has led to its recreational use as a dissociative anesthetic.
