Summary Proton concentration in SrZr0.95M0.05O3-α (M=Ga, Sc, Y and Nd) was measured with a thermobalance at different temperatures (T=673-973 K) and water vapor pressures (P H2O=0.9-12.8 kPa). At all the pressures and temperatures examined, the amount of proton concentration in these samples is in the order of Sc>Y>Ga>Nd. By an equilibrium evaluation, we estimated the maximum possible proton concentration about 2.0 mol% in these samples. Infrared (IR) absorption spectra are measured in these samples. The absorption bands can be fitted by four (M=Ga, Y, Nd) or three (M=Sc) Gaussian bands.

Abstract  

A detailed thermodynamic study of the systems LnSe2LnSe1.5 (Ln = La, Nd) was performed by static method of vapour pressure measurement using quartz membrane-gauge manometers within the temperature range 713–1,395 K. The p SeTx dependences obtained in this study have shown that the phase regions in composition intervals studied consist of discrete phases: LnSe1.95 LnSe1.90, LnSe1.85, LnSe1.80 (Ln = La, Nd). The enthalpies and the entropies for the stepwise dissociation process were calculated from the experimental data. The standard enthalpies of formation and the absolute entropies were estimated for the compounds investigated using literature data.

Abstract  

Transpiration method was used to measure the equilibrium water vapor pressures of the dehydration of the respective hydrates, such as oxalates, sulfates,chlorides and acetate, and the enthalpies of dehydrations (ΔH Tr 0) of these hydrates were obtained. The heats of dehydrations (ΔH DSC 0) were also determined by TG-DSC method. From the comparison with ΔH Tr 0 of ΔH DSC 0, the relation of ΔH DSC 0H Tr 0=R (=dehydration molar number determined by TG-DSC peak/stoichiometric dehydration molar number) was yielded. From these results, the following relations were found: ΔH DSC 0(corrected)=ΔH DSC 0/RH Tr 0

Abstract  

An automatic pressure tracking adiabatic calorimeter (APTAC) has been developed to obtain the thermokinetic and vapor pressure data during runaway reactions. The heat onset temperature is important data for estimating the thermal hazardous materials. DTBP(di-tert-butyl peroxide)/toluene was chosen for evaluating the measurement values and the thermokinetic parameters. The relationships between the sample mass and the heat onset temperature in the addition to the maximum temperature were investigated to explain the heat of reaction measured by the APTAC. The apparatus properties and the reliability of the data obtained by the APTAC were examined on the basis of the experimental data.

Abstract  

The present work reports the experimental determination of the standard (p o = 0.1 MPa) molar enthalpies of formation in the condensed and gaseous phases, at T = 298.15 K, of 5- and 6-nitroindazole. These results were derived from the measurements of the standard molar energies of combustion, using a static bomb calorimeter and from the standard molar enthalpies of sublimation derived by the application of Clausius–Clapeyron to the temperature dependence of the vapour pressures measured by the Knudsen effusion technique. The results are interpreted in terms of the energetic contributions of the nitro groups in the different positions of the aromatic ring.

Abstract  

Urea-adduct process is commercially used to selectively separate n-alkanes from industrial hydrocarbon mixtures. Authors have explored application of this method for recovery of n-alkane based diluents from spent PUREX/UREX solvent. Traditionally this separation is performed by vacuum distillation, an energy-intensive process. The proposed method is simple and does not involve either exotic chemicals or complex processing steps. Application of urea-adduct process for recovery of diluent from spent solvent is reported here possibly first time in literature. Physical properties such as densities, viscosities and vapour pressure for irradiated organic solutions were also measured and reported.

Abstract  

Engine Viking of Ariane 4 is supplied with asymmetrical dimethylhydrazine (UDMH) (CH3)2NNH2. An addition of a small amount of hydrazine hydrate N2H4H2O was proposed to increase the thermal stability of UDMH. The mixture where the mass ratio (CH3)2NNH2/N2H4H2O is equals to 75/25, is called UH25. These propelling agents are unstable when they are heated and the optimisation of burning conditions requires a good knowledge of their vaporisation and of their thermal decomposition kinetics.

Abstract  

Thermodynamic properties of pure titanium stannides obtained by crucible-less growth techniques under vacuum are determined by differential scanning calorimetry and Knudsen effusion. The enthalpy, specific heat capacity, entropy and Gibbs energy temperature dependence were simulated using Maier and Kelly equations. Standard enthalpies of evaporation, formation and atomization of titanium stannides were determined and compared with earlier-known data.

Abstract  

The aim of this work is to highlight the importance of controlling the residual water vapour pressure above the sample as well as the rate of the thermal decomposition during the thermal dehydration of cerium cyclotriphosphate trihydrate CeP3O9·3H2O. For this reason, the dehydration of the titled compound was followed by both techniques: the constant rate thermal analysis at P H2O = 5 hPa and the conventional TG-DTA in air. It has been shown that the pathway of the thermal dehydration depends strongly on the nature of atmosphere above the sample. However, in air atmosphere CeP3O9·3H2O decomposes in two well defined steps to give first an amorphous, phase in the temperature range 440–632 K, then the cerium polyphosphate Ce(PO3)3 crystallizing in orthorhombic system (C2221) at T>632 K. Whereas decomposition carried out at 5 hPa water vapour pressure, also occurring in two steps, leads first to a crystallized intermediate monohydrate at 259<T<343 K and second to a crystallized anhydrous cerium polyphosphate, at 343<T<791 K, with a structure different from those of all lanthanide polyphosphate known actually and particularly from that of Ce(PO3)3 obtained in air. The activation energy corresponding to the dehydration of the initial phosphate was also measured experimentally by means of two CRTA curves and was found equal to 81±5 kJ mol−1.

Abstract  

Isopropylnitrate (IPN) is described as a detonable material used in propellants and explosives. While there is considerable information available on its sensitivity and compatibility with other materials, very little is known about its thermochemical properties. This paper will describe the results obtained from some DSC, heat flux calorimetry (HFC) and accelerating rate calorimetry (ARC) measurements. The ASTM DSC method using a hermetic aluminum pan having a lid with a laser-produced pin hole was used to determine the vapour pressure of IPN1. Results calculated from an Antoine equation are in substantial agreement with those determined from DSC measurements. From the latter measurements, the enthalpy of vaporization was determined to be 35.320.62 kJ mol−1. Attempts to determine vapour pressures above about 0.8 MPa resulted in significant decomposition of IPNg. The enthalpy change for decomposition in sealed glass systems was found to be -3.430.09 kJ g−1 and -3.850.03 kJ g−1, respectively from DSC and HFC measurements on IPN1 samples loaded in air. Slightly larger exotherms were observed for the HFC results in air than those in inert gas, suggesting some oxidation occurs. In contrast, no significant difference in the observed onset temperature of about 150C was observed for both the HFC and ARC results. From DSC measurements, an Arrhenius activation energy for decomposition of 1264 kJ mol−1 was found. These measurements were also conducted in sealed glass systems and decomposition appeared to proceed primarily from the liquid phase.
