REPASSIVATION STUDIES OF ALUMINUM USING A ROTATING STRIP ELECTRODE

REPASSIVATION STUDIES OF ALUMINUM USING A ROTATING STRIP ELECTRODE

Date: September 1, 1977
Creator: ALDYKIEWICZ,A.J.,JR. & ISAACS,H.S.
Description: In this work a technique was described to study the repassivation of bare metal surfaces. The advantage of this approach over other techniques is the ease with which multiple repassivation events can be studied. The repassivation rate of aluminum was found to depend on the anion in solution. Repassivation rates are higher for aluminum in phosphate and sulfate solutions compared to borate. It is possible that borate may interact more strongly than sulfate or phosphate on the bare aluminum surface blocking the diffusion of oxygen or changing the rate of repassivation.

DAMAGE TO MITOCHONDRIAL ELECTRON TRANSPORT AND ENERGY COUPLING BY VISIBLE LIGHT

DAMAGE TO MITOCHONDRIAL ELECTRON TRANSPORT AND ENERGY COUPLING BY VISIBLE LIGHT

Date: September 1, 1977
Creator: Aggarwal, B.B.; Quintanilha, A.T.; Cammack, R. & Packer, L.
Description: Plutonium is one of the principal materials of both commercial and military nuclear power. It is produced primarily in fission reactors that contain uranium fuel, and its importance arises from the fact that a large portion of the plutonium produced is fissile: like uranium 235, the mass 239 and 241 isotopes of plutonium can be caused to fission by neutrons, including those with low energy. Because such fission events also release neutrons, substantial amounts of energy can be extracted from plutonium in a controlled or an explosive nuclear chain reaction. Now that commercial nuclear reactors provide a noticeable fraction of United States (and world) electrical energy, these reactors account for most plutonium production. For the most part, this material now remains in the irradiated fuel after removal from reactors, but should this fuel be reprocessed, the plutonium could be recycled to provide part and even most of the fissile content of fresh fuel. For the current generation of water-cooled reactors, the amount of plutonium to be recycled is substantial. In fast breeder reactors, designed to produce more fissile material than they destroy, considerably larger quantities of plutonium would be recycled. In other types of advanced reactors, particularly those which depend ...

Date: 1977
Creator: Allen, John W.; Levitz, Norman M.; Rabl, Ari; Reed, Kent A.; Schertz, William W.; Thodos, George et al.
Description: Progress report describing the development of Compound Parabolic Concentrators (CPC). A tenfold concentrator with a cavity receiver was constructed and tested.

SYNTHESIS AND CRYSTAL STRUCTURE OF A NEODYMIUM ISOPROPOXIDE CHLORIDE, Nd6[OCH(CH3)2]17Cl1

SYNTHESIS AND CRYSTAL STRUCTURE OF A NEODYMIUM ISOPROPOXIDE CHLORIDE, Nd6[OCH(CH3)2]17Cl1

Date: December 1, 1977
Creator: Andersen, R.A.; Templeton, D.H. & Zalkin, A.
Description: Neodymium (III) chloride reacts with sodium isopropoxide in isopropyl alcohol to produce a complex which has been characterized by an x-ray crystal structure determination to be hexa-isopropoxy-nona({mu}{sub 2}-isopropoxy)-di-({mu}{sub 3}-isopropoxY)-({mu}{sub 6}-chloro-hexa-neodymium), Nd{sub 6}[OCH(CH{sub 3}){sub 2}]{sub 17}Cl. The pale blue crystals are monoclinic, space group P2{sub 1}/n with cell dimensions a = 24.52(2) {angstrom}, b = 22.60(2) {angstrom}, c = 14.22(1) {angstrom}, and {beta} = 101.05(5){sup o}; for four molecules in the unit cell the calculated density is 1.636 gm/cc. The structure was refined by full-matrix least-squares to a conventional R factor of 0.076 for 2327 data with I > 2{sigma}. The six neodymium atoms form a trigonal prism centered about the chloride atom. Six isopropoxide groups are terminal, nine are edge bridging, and two are bridging a trigonal face of the prism yielding six two-coordinate, nine three-coordinate, and two four-coordinate oxygen atoms, respectively. The average Nd-Cl distance is 3.05(1) {angstrom}. The average Nd-O distances for oxygen atoms which are bonded to one, two, and three Nd atoms are 2.05(2) {angstrom}, 2.36(4) {angstrom}, and 2.45(5) {angstrom}, respectively.

Preliminary Assessment of the Health and Environmental Effects of Coal Utilization in the Midwest. Volume 1. Energy Scenarios, Technology Characterizations, Air and Water Resource Impacts, and Health Effects

Preliminary Assessment of the Health and Environmental Effects of Coal Utilization in the Midwest. Volume 1. Energy Scenarios, Technology Characterizations, Air and Water Resource Impacts, and Health Effects

Date: January 1977
Creator: Argonne National Laboratory
Description: This report presents an initial evaluation of the major health and environmental issues associated with increased coal use in the six midwestern states of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin is presented. Using an integrated assessment approach, the evaluation proceeds from a base-line scenario of energy demand and facility siting for the period 1975 to 2020. Emphasis is placed on impacts from coal extraction, land reclamation, coal combustion for electrical generation, and coal gasification. The range of potential impacts and constraints is illustrated by a second scenario that represents an expected upper limit for coal utilization in Illinois. Included are: (1) a characterization of the energy demand and siting scenarios, coal related technologies, and coal resources, and (2) the related impacts on air quality, water availability, water quality, and human health.

Preliminary Assessment of the Health and Environmental Impacts of Fluidized-Bed Combustion of Coal as Applied to Electrical Utility Systems

Preliminary Assessment of the Health and Environmental Impacts of Fluidized-Bed Combustion of Coal as Applied to Electrical Utility Systems

Date: February 1977
Creator: Argonne National Laboratory
Description: The objective of this study was to assess the health and environmental impacts of fluidized-bed combustion of coal (FBC), specifically as applied to base-load generation of electrical energy by utilities. The public health impacts of Fluidized-Bed Combustion (FBC) plants are expected to be quite similar to those for Low Sulfur Coal (LSC) and Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) plants because all appear to be able to meet Federal emission standards; however, there are emissions not covered by standards. Hydrocarbon emissions are higher and trace element emissions are lower for FBC than for conventional technologies. For FBC, based on an analytical model and a single emission data point, the polycyclic organic material decreases the anticipated lifespan of the highly exposed public very slightly. Added health protection due to lower trace element emissions is not known. Although there is a large quantity of solid wastes from the generating plant, the environmental impact of the FBC technology due to solid residue appears lower than for FGD, where sludge management requires larger land areas and presents problems due to the environmentally noxious calcium sulfite in the waste. Fixing the sludge may become a requirement that increases the cost of wet-limestone FGD but makes that system ...
