Chemical Technology Division, Unit Operations Section Monthly Progress Report, May 1961

Description: The experimental results on the oxidation of H from a He stream with CuO pellets were very close to the predicted behavior based on the mathematical model. Experimental measurements of uranyl sulfate loading rates on chloride equilibrated resin showed little variation with solution concentrations. A tentative flowsbeet was proposed for cost analysis of processing a Pebble Bed Reactor. A U-Zr plate was dissolved in nitrate-free Zirflex solution. An authentic TRIGA prototype was processed in engi… more

Effect of cation exchange on the subsequent reactivity of lignite chars to steam. [108 references]

Description: The purpose of this investigation is to determine the role which cations in coal play in the subsequent reactivity of chars. It is hoped that this investigation will aid in an understanding of the catalytic nature of inorganic constituents in coal during its gasification. It was found that increased heat treatment temperature decreased reactivity. The decrease in reactivity was shown to be due, at least in part, to the changes in the nature of the cation with increased heat treatment temperatur… more

Time and space dependency of radiative transfer in magnesium

Description: Radiative transfer in a magnesium vapor has been studied. The experimental cell was designed to provide stable density measurements with a ..delta..lambda/sup -2/ variation with respect to the magnesium resonance line, which indicated pure Rayleigh scattering and no evidence of impurities. Total intensity measurements show the radiation field to be highly anisotropic, although somewhat less at late times. 8 refs., 7 figs. (WRF).

Resonance ionization mass spectrometry at Los Alamos National Laboratory

Description: Two approaches to RIMS will be discussed here. The first is the use of continuous-wave (cw) dye lasers as the ionization source. Continuous excitation effectively matches the ionization to the evaporation of sample from a resistively heated filament, providing for efficient use of the sample. In addition, cw ionization permits pulse counting detection, necessary for the measurement of large isotope ratios on small samples. In the cases of lutetium and technetium discussed below, average ionizat… more

The magnesium chelation step in chlorophyll biosynthesis

Description: The biogenesis of energy transducing membranes requires the coordinate synthesis of prosthetic groups, proteins and lipids. Two of the major prosthetic groups, chlorophyll and heme, share a common biosynthetic pathway that diverges at the point of metal insertion into protoporphyrin IX. Insertion of iron leads to heme, while insertion of magnesium leads to chlorophyll. The Mg-chelatase from intact cucumber chloroplasts has been characterized with regard to substrate specificity, regulation, ATP… more

Neutron star formation in theoretical supernovae. Low mass stars and white dwarfs

Description: The presupernova evolution of stars that form semi-degenerate or strongly degenerate O + Ne + Mg cores is discussed. For the 10 to 13 Msub solar stars, behavior of off-center neon flashes is crucial. The 8 to 10 m/sub solar stars do not ignite neon and eventually collapse due to electron captures. Properties of supernova explosions and neutron stars expected from these low mass progenitors are compared with the Crab nebula. The conditions for which neutron stars form from accretion-induced coll… more

Phase Transformations in Alumina. Technical Report, May to December 1961

Description: e transformation studies showed that synthetic aluminas produced in the laboratory were not transformed to alpha alumina at 400 to 700' deg n the presence of nitric acid and water vapor. Amorphous aluminn produced in the pilot plant was transformed to alpha alumina. This indicated that the amorphous alumina produced in the pilot plant is structurally predisposed to form alpha alumina. Most additives did not appear to have any special effects. Lithium formed zeta alumina, LiAl/sub 5/O/sub 8/. Ph… more

Chemical Technology Division, Unit Operations Section Monthly Progress Report, August 1961

Description: Engineering studies of a 6-in.-ID countercurrent foam column were started. The capacity of Mark II Stacked Clone Contactor was found to be limited by gradually increasing entrainment. Thoria sols were prepared from trough denitrator products in a conical bottom tank agitated by circulation through an external centrifugal pump. Experimental results agreed favorably with predicted results for the reaction of CO with CuO and fur the simultaneous reactions of H/ sub 2/ and CO with CuO. In a 2-in. d… more

Presupernova evolution of massive stars

Description: Population I stars of 15 M/sub mass/ and 25 M/sub mass/ have been evolved from the zero-age main sequence through iron core collapse utilizing a numerical model that incorporates both implicit hydrodynamics and a detailed treatment of nuclear reactions. The stars end their presupernova evolution as red supergiants with photospheric radii of 3.9 x 10/sup 13/ cm and 6.7 x 10/sup 13/ cm, respectively, and density structures similar to those invoked to explain Type II supernova light curves on a st… more

CHEMICAL ENGINEERING DIVISION SUMMARY REPORT, JANUARY-MARCH 1962

Description: Additional experiments conducted on nitridation of irradiated U-fissium fuel pins revealed that irradiation does not greatly affect the nitridation rate at 300 deg C. In skullreclamation development, a phase separation common to both the blanket- and skull-processes was investigated in which a 50% Mg-- Zn supernatant solution was removed from precipitated U metal. In most runs the supernatant phase was removed with negligible U entrainment. The reduction rate of ZrO by Zn--Mg solution under sku… more

Cation exchange at pressures up to 400 M Pascals

Description: The effects of pressures up to 400 MPa (approximately 60,000 psi) on the capacity factors of sodium, potassium, rubidium, lithium and magnesium ions were studied using nitrate eluents. The capacity factors, corrected for compression, were changed by almost 25% for rubidium and potassium ions by going from atmospheric pressure to 350 MPa. The corrected capacity factor for magnesium ion changed 15%, whereas those for lithium and sodium were essentially unchanged. The effect was attributed to chan… more

Review of the classical nova outburst

Description: Observational studies have not only identified a new class of novae but theoretical simulations of this class have been found to be in excellent agreement with the observations. This new class consists of outbursts occurring on ONeMg white dwarfs in close binar systems in contrast to the other outbursts which are occurring on CO white dwarfs. We also review the effects of the ..beta../sup +/-unstable nuclei and show how their presence has a major effect on the evolution. 77 refs.
