Infrared Analysis of n-Hexadecafluoroheptane and Hexadecafluorodimethylcyclohexane

Description: Summary: "By use of infrared spectroscopy come of the impurities in n-hexadecafluoroheptane and hexadecafluorodimethylcyclohexane have been identified and accurate specification analyses have been devised for measuring these impurities. These infrared analytical methods were used as an aid in setting acceptance specifications on the materials and for determining whether production materials met specifications."

Characterization of Aprotic Solutes and Solvents using Abraham Model Correlations

Description: Experimental data were obtained for the computation of mole fraction solubilities of three dichloronitrobenzenes in organic solvents at 25oC, and solubility ratios were obtained from this data. Abraham model equations were developed for solutes in tributyl phosphate that describe experimental values to within 0.15 log units, and correlations were made to describe solute partitioning in systems that contain either "wet" or "dry" tributyl phosphate. Abraham model correlations have also been developed for solute transfer into anhydrous diisopropyl ether, and these correlations fit in well with those for other ethers. Abraham correlations for the solvation of enthalpy have been derived from experimental and literature data for mesitylene, p-xylene, chlorobenzene, and 1,2-dichlorobenzene at 298.15 K. In addition, the enthalpy contribution of hydrogen bonding between these solutes and acidic solvents were predicted by these correlations and were in agreement with an established method. Residual plots corresponding to Abraham models developed in all of these studies were analyzed for trends in error between experimental and calculated values.

Amine Extraction of Plutonium From Nitric Acid Solutions Loading and Stripping Experiments

Description: Information is presented on a suitable amine processing system for plutonium nitrate. Experiments with concentrated plutonium nitrate solutions show that trilaurylamine (TLA) - xylene solvent systems did not form a second organic phase. Experiments are also reported with tri-noctylamine (TnOA)-xylene and TLA-Amsco - octyl alcohol. Two organic phases appear in both these systems at high plutonium nitrate concentrations. Data are tabulated from loading and stripping experiments. (J.R.D.)

The Radiolysis of the Xylene Isomers and Ethylbenzene

Description: The G-values for the formation of H/sub 2/ and CH/sub 4/ in the Co/sup 60/ gamma radiolysis of the xylene isomers and ethylbenzene were compared. The presence of iodine does not affect G/sub H2/, but reduces G/sub CH4/ a limiting value. For p-xylene, G/sub G2/ and the unscavengeable CH/sub 4/ yield are independent of temperature from 20 to 110 deg C, whereas the total CH/sub 4/ yield increases six-fold over this range. The H/sub 2/ and CH/sub 4/ yields are greatiy reduced in the solid state, and in the liquids state benzene shows a protective effect on the yields of both gases. The formation of CH/sub 4/ and C/ sub 2/-hydrocarbons was compared with the C/sub 6-/ and C/sub 7-/products for p- xylene and ethylbenzene, and isomerization is shown to occur to a negligible extent. The production of high-molecular-weight products was measured for the xylenes, and is independent of dose rate and temperature for liquid p-xylene, but is decreased in the solid state. The results are qualitatively consistent with the reactions of radicals and excited molecules. (auth)

Metal loaded poly-p-xylene

Description: Inertial confinement fusion target designs frequently require hydrocarbon polymer coatings loaded with varying amounts of high atomic number materials, typically metals. In addition to the usual requirements on thickness uniformity and surface finish, the metal loading must be dispersed in the polymer matrix on a submicron scale. The common means of obtaining such coatings for laser fusion targets is by glow discharge polymerization of an appropriate organometallic monomer starting material. Particle beam fusion targets, on the other hand, have utilized polymer coatings obtained by the pyrolytic vapor deposition of p-xylene. With this process, one may obtain halogenated poly-p-xylene by synthesis of the required halogenated dimer. Alternatively, we are developing a technique to incorporate metals into poly-p-xylene, essentially by combining the reactive monomer vapor, downstream from the pyrolysis region, with metal vapor from a resistively-heated source in a vacuum chamber. In addition to allowing the possibility of codeposition with any material which can be deposited by thermal evaporation, the technique allows for graded composition/density within the coating. In principle, one can obtain films with metal loadings continuously variable from that of the poly-p-xylene matrix through solid metal density.

COMPARISONS OF ORGANIC EXTRACTANTS FOR IRRADIATED URANIUM: TRIBUTYLPHOSPHATE VS DI-SEC-BUTYL PHENYLPHOSPHONATE, DI-N-BUTYL PHENYLPHOSPHONATE, TRI-CAPRYL-PHOSPHATE AND TRI-SEC-BUTYLPHOSPHATE

Description: Batch extraction scouting tests were performed to establish comparisons of distribution coefficients for uranium, thorium, fission product, and/or plutonium in systems involving several classes of organic phosphorus compounds (diluted in Amsco 125-82 and/or xylene) and aqueous nitrate or nitric acid solutions. Results have substantiated previous conclusions which suggested (1) that the branched secondary alkylphosphates and alkylphenylphosphonates would generally afford uranium separation factors (from thorium and fission products) superior to those obtainable by tributylphosphate (TBP, a normal alkylphosphate); and (2) that the phenylphosphonates would afford reasonably higher extractability of uranium. Preliminary data from irradiation tests with di-sec-butyl phenylphosphonate also support a previous conclusion (3) that the phenyl group affords greater radiation stability of the organo-phosphorus compounds. Since the compound di-sec-butyl phenylphosphonate (DSBPP) effectively combines the above advantages (1), (2), and (3), it has received especial attention as a potential practical competitor for TBP as a recovery process extractant.

Continuous biodegradation of waste xylene

Description: Use of selected microorganisms for the degradation and/or detoxification of hazardous organic compounds is gaining wide acceptance as an alternative waste treatment technology. The INEL Biotechnology Unit is developing the technology for the in-plant treatment of waste industrial solvents. The work centers around the use of microorganisms specially selected for their ability to degrade common industrial solvents such as benzene, toluene, xylene, etc. Because these waste solvents are often contaminated with other materials (heavy metals, water, detergents, etc.) they are difficult and expensive to dispose and many times are not economical to recover through recycling. Even if the disposal option is used, the generator is still faced with continued liability in the event of mishandling or improper disposal of the waste. Biological treatments offers the option of reducing these solvents into harmless by-products provided that both the requisite microorganisms and the proper processing technology are successfully brought together. Work on the optimization of a bioreactor process for the degradation of xylene will be discussed. 15 figs., 7 refs.
