31. SEABIRD TISSUE ARCHIVAL AND MONITORING PROJECT: Egg Collections and Analytical Results for 2006-2009
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7872
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 8/2/2012
Authors: Stacy S Vander-Pol, Paul R. (Paul) Becker, Sylvain Berail, Russell D Day, Olivier F. X. Donard, Keith A. Hobson, Amanda J Moors, Rebecca S Pugh, Lauren B. Rust, David G. Roseneau
Abstract: Since 1999, the Seabird Tissue Archival and Monitoring Project (STAMP) has collected, banked, and analyzed seabird eggs using established protocols to monitor chlorinated pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), brominated flame retardants, ...

32. Biodiesel Fuels from Supercritical Fluid Processing: Quality Evaluation with the Advanced Distillation Curve Method and Cetane Numbers
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 7/9/2012
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, George G. Anitescu, Lawrence L Tavlarides
Abstract: To develop efficient reactor and plant designs to optimize the process of biofuel production, thermophysical and chemical properties of various reactive mixtures as well as those of biofuel are required over wide range of conditions. In this study, t ...

33. On spectroscopic models of the O2 A-band and their impact upon atmospheric retrievals
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 6/27/2012
Authors: David A Long, Joseph Terence Hodges
Abstract: Highly accurate spectroscopic models for O2 A-band absorption are required in numerous satellite- and ground-based remote sensing measurements of atmospheric greenhouse gases. In this study, we quantify the sensitivity of the calculated A-band transm ...

34. Cold Neutron Activation Analysis, a Nondestructive Technique for Hydrogen Level Assessment in Zirconium Alloys
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 6/1/2012
Authors: Rick L Paul, Adrien Couet, Arthur Motta, Robert Comstock
Abstract: We propose a novel use of a non-destructive technique to quantitatively assess hydrogen concentration in zirconium alloys. The technique, called Cold Neutron Prompt Gamma Activation Analysis (CNPGAA), is based on measuring prompt gamma rays following ...

35. Environmental Metabolomics
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 3/15/2012
Author: Daniel W Bearden
Abstract: The application of metabolomics in the field of environmental science or ecology, which has developed based substantially on NMR spectroscopic approaches, is a fast paced, rapidly developing field which seems to be poised to help re-frame the discu ...

36. Measurements and Modeling Study on a High-Aromatic Diesel Fuel
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 1/31/2012
Authors: Bret Windom, Marcia L Huber, Thomas J Bruno, A L Lown, C T Lira
Abstract: The increasing cost of diesel fuel, potential for supply disruptions, and environmental concerns have resulted in a great deal of research to improve the performance and efficiency of diesel engines. This includes significant efforts in the reformul ...

37. Predictive Gold Nanocluster Formation Controlled by Metal-Ligand Complexes
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 1/9/2012
Authors: John M Pettibone, Jeffrey W Hudgens
Abstract: The formation of ligand-protected transition metal nanoclusters in size-selective syntheses is driven by the inherent properties of the protecting ligands. We have previously reported the selective, monodisperse product formation of phosphine protect ...

38. Comparison of Diesel Fuel Oxygenates with Composition-Explicit Distillation Curve Method Part 4: Alcohols, Aldehydes, and Butanoic Acid
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 1/2/2012
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Jessica Lynne Burger, Evgenii Baibourine
Abstract: There is a great deal of interest in formulating oxygenated diesel fuels that produce low particulate emissions. In this paper, the fourth in a series of papers on the properties of mixtures of diesel fuel with oxygenating additives, we present the ...

39. Compressed-Liquid Density Measurements of Methyl Oleate and Methyl Linoleate
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 9/30/2011
Author: Stephanie L Outcalt
Abstract: Compressed liquid densities of the fatty acid methyl esters methyl linoleate and methyl oleate have been measured with a vibrating-tube densimeter. The temperature and pressure range of the measured data is from 270 K to 470 K, and 0.5 MPa to 50 MPa. ...

40. Assessment of the Composition and Distillation Properties of Thermally Stressed RP-1 and RP-2: Application to Fuel Regenerative Cooling
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 9/28/2011
Authors: Bret Windom, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: In this work, we measured the volatility of thermally stressed samples of RP-1 and RP-2 rocket kerosenes by use of the advanced distillation curve method. This work is part of a large program at NIST and other laboratories geared toward improving th ...
