Do solid propellants have an optimum temperature to burn effectively?

If so, what is the range of temperature needed?

    $\begingroup$ Pressure is closely related to temperature. Perhaps this question should be linked space.stackexchange.com/questions/439/… $\endgroup$ – Everyone Sep 7 '13 at 13:30

    $\begingroup$ @Everyone its about optimum temperature and IMO both questions are not linked $\endgroup$ – Hash Sep 7 '13 at 14:05

    $\begingroup$ Varies greatly based on propellant and engine types, a range is effectively meaningless in this broad context. "Optimum temperature" is unclear too, how broad of a range can still be an "optimum temperature"? $\endgroup$ – called2voyage Sep 9 '13 at 15:55
