Kinetics of the Alkylation and Acylation of Nickel Dipivaloyimethide

Description: Abstract: A study was made of the reactions of nickel dipivaloyimethide with the following reagents: tirphenylmethyl chloride, benzoyl chloride, [rho]-chloro and [rho]-methyl benzoyl chloride. Infrared spectra of the easily hydrolyzed product of tritylation seem to indicate that enol ether, the product of O-alkylation, is formed. the acyl halides reactor to give the triketones. the latter have been characterized by spectra and C, H, analysis. the kinetics of all the reactions studied were found to settle down to a second order rate law after a fast initial reaction. These reactions are catalyzed by an impurity in the acyl chloride. Then benzoyl chloride with a different purity was used, the second order rate constant for the benzoylation of nickel DPM ranged from 0.02-0.20. The air oxidation of nickel dipivaloymethide was found to compete with the acylations under the conditions of these studies. An investigation of the phenomenon showed that nickel pivalate is the major product. Pivalic acid was also detected in the product mixture. This oxidation takes place in chlorobenzene and in aromatic hydrocarbons. It occurs in 1201 when small amount on benzoyl chlorides are present.

Cation Exchange in Acetone-Water-Hydrochloric Acid

Description: Abstract: Distribution coefficients have been measured for the partition of metal ions between cation exchange resin and acetone-water-hydrochloric acid solutions. the differences in distribution coefficients of metal ions are greater in acetone-water media than in aqueous media of the same hydrochloric acid concentration. Using distribution coefficient data, conditions for column separations of mixtures can be selected. Column separations of metal ion mixtures can be effected by eluting with acetone-water-hydrochloric acid solutions of different compositions. Successful separations of a number of mixtures are reported.

The Uranium-Rhenium Alloy System

Description: Abstract The phase diagram of the uranium-rhenium alloy system is presented along with a discussion on transformation kinetics of the uranium solid solutions. The phase diagram is of the double eutectic type with the intermediate phase having the composition URe2. This phase exhibits allotropy at 180°C and melts congruently at 2200°C. URe2 reacts sluggishly with the uranium solid solutions below 750°C to form the peritectoid compound U2Re. Eutectic reactions occur at 1105° and 2105°C at respective compositions of 10.5 and 65.5 wt. % Re. Eutectoid reactions occur at 643° and 681°C at compositions of 1.4 and 6 wt. % Re, respectively. The maximum solubility of rhenium in α uranium is about 0.4 wt. % at 643°C and in β uranium is 1.9 wt. % at 681°C. The solubility of rhenium in γ uranium is 6 wt. % at 681°C and increases to about 7 wt. % at 975°C. The solubility of uranium in rhenium is 0.6 wt. % at room temperature with little variation up to 2000°C. Alloys of β and γ uranium containing more than about 1.2 and 7 wt. % Re respectively, can be readily supercooled to room temperature. Rapid cooling of γ alloys containing less than about 7 wt. % Re resulted in a direct γ → α′ transformation, the α′ state being a supersaturated α phase having a banded microstructure. Evidence is presented for the existence of two transition states, one involving the γ phase decomposition and the other the β → α transformation. The sequence of phase changes involved in cooling the uranium solid solutions is discussed.

Flame Spectra of Vanadium, Niobium, Rhenium, Titanium and Molybdenum

Description: Abstract Line spectra of vanadium, niobium, titanium, molybdenum and rhenium of sufficient intensity to allow detection at the 1–10 p.p.m. level can be excited in fuel-rich, oxy-acetylene flames. For the strongest lines of tungsten, the sensitivity of detection is 90 p.p.m. Weak lines of zirconium, hafnium, osmium, tantalum and uranium are also observed in these flames. Recordings of the spectra are given along with wavelength tables of the strongest lines.

Crystalline Field Splittings in Holmium and Dysprosium Ethylsulfates

Description: From report : "It has become apparent that pragmatic resonance data alone are insufficient to correctly evaluate crystal field parameters for rare-earth ethylsulfates, and that heat capacity data above 20°K are a useful aid in determining whether low lying levels obtained by absorption spectroscopy have been correctly identified."

High Pressure Research at Low Temperatures

Description: Two principle reasons exist for the extension of high pressure research to temperatures near absolute zero. First, the comparison of certain data with theory (such as the pressure-volume relationship) is more meaningful if the effects of thermal vibrations can be ignored. Second, there are phenomena which can be studied only at low temperatures. These include superconductivity, the properties of solid helium and other inert gases, some electronic phenomena, etc.

Tricarbalyllic Acid (Propane-1, 2, 3-Tricarboxylic Acid)

Description: From report : "Tricarbalyllic acid (propane-1, 2, 3-tricarboxylic acid) has a structure similar to that of citric acid, except that it lacks the hydroxyl group attached to the middle of the carbon atom. Properties of the rare earth citrates have been used very successfully in the separation of rare earths by ion exchange methods; consequently it was deemed advisable to study the rare-earth compounds which form with the anion if triarbalyllic acid."

Chlorotriammineplatinum(II) Ion : Acid Hydrolysis and Isotopic Exchange of Chloride Ligand

Description: Abstract: The acid hydrolysis of [Pt(NH3)3Cl] has been shown to occur to a measurable extent. for this reaction: [APt(NH3)cCl]+ + H2O [chemical equilibrium symbol with rate constant k-1 above and k1 below] [Pt(NH3)c(H2O)]++ + Cl-, the equilibrium quotient was measured at 25 degree C and 35 degree C. At 25 degree C this quotient was 8.4 x 10-5 at [Mu] (ionic strength) = 0 and 25 x 10-5 at [mu] = .318 M. This variation is consistent with the expected changes in activity coefficients. [Delta]H for the reaction was found to be approximately 0. The rate constant, k1 was 2.3 x 10-5 sec.-1 at 25 degree C and it was nearly independent of ionic strength. The acid hydrolysis provides a mechanism for the exchange of the chloride ligand and Cl-. Exchange experiments with Cl36 showed that in addition to the acid hydrolysis, a process, first order in both, [Pt(NH3)3Cl] and Cl- with a rate constant of 6. 10-5 sec.-1M.-1 contributes to the exchange. The behavior of the entire series of chloro-ammines of platinum(II) toward acid hydrolysis and chloride exchange has been summarized, and a likely mechanism for the process has been discussed.
