A Review of the Utilization of Fission Fragment Energy for the Fixation of Nitrogen

Description: Report issued by the Brookhaven National Laboratory discussing methods of nitrogen fixation, and their economic impacts. As stated in the introduction, "studies are described on circulating dust fuels, as well as fixed plated, porous bed, and other types of fuels as the basis for chemo-nuclear reactor designs, and the various fuel systems are compared on a technical and economic basis" (p. 3). This report includes tables, and illustrations.

Kinetic Investigation of the Gas Phase Atomic Sulfur and Nitrogen Dioxide Reaction

Description: The kinetics of the reaction of atomic sulfur and nitrogen dioxide have been investigated over the temperature range 298 to 650 K and pressures from 14 - 405 mbar using the laser flash photolysis - resonance fluorescence technique. The overall bimolecular rate expression k (T) = (1.88 ± 0.49) x10-11 exp-(4.14 ± 0.10 kJ mol-1)/RT cm3 molecule-1 s-1 is derived. Ab initio calculations were performed at the CCSD(T)/CBS level of theory and a potential energy surface has been derived. RRKM theory calculations were performed on the system. It is found that an initially formed SNO2 is vibrationally excited and the rate of collisional stabilization is slower than the rate of dissociation to SO + NO products by a factor of 100 - 1000, under the experimental conditions.

Obligately Thermophilic Nitrogen-Fixation in Some Soil Bacteria

Description: In the work presented here, it is claimed that bacteria have been isolated which are capable of growth at high temperatures utilizing molecular nitrogen as their sole nitrogen source. Soil bacteria were isolated which grew at 55 C in nitrogen-free media. They were found to be obligatory thermophiles in nitrogen-free media and facultative thermophiles in media containing organically bound nitrogen.

Nitrogen Derivatives of Naphthoquinone

Description: A series of nitrogen derivatives of 1,4-naphthoquinone, which are structurally similar to the compounds of Hall, has been prepared by this worker. In general, the amido groups are those of the long-chain, fatty acids, and it is believed they will have increased physiological activity. These compounds are to be tested for medicinal activity by Parke-Davis and Company.

Thermodynamic Properties of Gaseous Nitrogen

Description: Note presenting tables of thermal properties of molecular nitrogen that have been prepared in an NBS-NACA series and grouped together for convenient use. Some of the properties include the thermodynamic functions for the gas, both real and ideal, the transport properties for the gas, and the vapor pressure of the liquid and the solid.

Interfacial Tension Measurement on A1(NO₃)₃ - H₂O - HNO₃ - Dibutyl Cellosolve System

Description: This report discusses two methods used for experimental determination of the interfacial tension of an immisible aqueous-organic system where the density of the organic phase is less than that of the aqueous phase. The methods discussed are the falling drop method and the Donnan modification/rising drop method.

Biological Nitrogen Fixation in Two Southwestern Reservoirs

Description: This investigation has determined the presence of biological nitrogen fixation in two reservoirs in the southwestern United States: Lake Arlington and Lake Ray Hubbard. Subsequent tests have gathered baseline data on the effects of various biological, chemical, and physical parameters on in situ nitrogen fixation in these reservoirs. Of specific importance is the relationship between nitrogen fixation arid occasional blooms of blue-green algae which produce such problems as testes and odors in these water-supply impoundments.

Relative Yields of Nitrogen-17 Produced by 190-Mev Deuteron Bombardment

Description: "Yields of N¹⁷ relative to that produced in LiF have been measured in the 190-Mev deflected deuteron and the 380-Mev alpha beams of the 184-inch synchrocyclotron. The measurements have been performed in all the light elements from 0 through V, with the exception of Sc and the noble gases. In addition, yields were measured in the separated isotopes of Mg...Comparisons are made with other types of yield studies performed with neutrons and protons, and the areas of agreement are noted."

Some Measurements of the Effect of Gaseous Imperfections on the Critical Pressure Ratio in Air and the Speed of Sound in Nitrogen

Description: Note presenting experiments made to measure the speed of sound in nitrogen at room temperatures in the pressure range of 0 to 2000 pounds per square inch, and the critical pressure ratio of air expanded isentropically from stagnation conditions in the same range. The experimental results were compared with values obtained by using the Van der Waals equation and the Beattie-Bridgeman equation.
