51. Assessment of the Compositional Variability of RP-1 and RP-2 with the Advanced Distillation Curve Approach
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 10/21/2010
Authors: Tara M Lovestead, Bret Windom, Jennifer Riggs, Chris Nickell, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: RP-1 is a long-established hydrocarbon fuel that continues to be widely used as the kerosene component in rocket propulsion systems. The desire in recent years to use rocket motors many times, rather than a single time, has led to reformulations of ...

52. Application of Inkjet Printing Technology to Produce Test Materials of 1,3,5-Trinitro-1,3,5 Triazcyclohexane for Trace Explosive Analysis
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 10/15/2010
Authors: Eric S Windsor, Marcela Najarro Najarro, Anna N. Bloom, Bruce A Benner Jr, Robert A Fletcher, John G Gillen, Richard Lareau, Inho Cho, Mike Boldmand
Abstract: The feasibility of using piezoelectric drop-on-demand inkjet printing to prepare test materials for trace explosive analysis is demonstrated. Both pure high explosives and plastic-bonded putty explosives were formulated into inkjet printable solut ...

53. Comparison of Jet Fuels by Measurements of Density and Speed of Sound of a Flightline JP-8
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 9/13/2010
Authors: Stephanie L Outcalt, Arno R Laesecke, Karin Brumback
Abstract: The density of a flightline jet fuel (JP-8) was measured with two vibrating-tube densimeters. The combined range of the data is from 270 K to 470 K with pressures to 40 MPa. The speed of sound in the fuel was measured with a propagation time method a ...

54. Flow Visualization Techniques for the Evaluation of Non-Contact Trace Contraband Detectors
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 8/1/2010
Authors: Matthew E Staymates, Wayne Smith, John G Gillen, Richard T. Lareau, Robert A Fletcher
Abstract: Efforts are underway in the Surface and Microanalysis Science Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology to study trace aerodynamic sampling of explosive particles using walk-through portal-based detection systems. Explosive trace ...

55. Evaluation of the Physicochemical Authenticity of Aviation Kerosene Surrogate Mixtures Part I: Analysis of Volatility with the Advanced Distillation Curve
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 7/19/2010
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Beverly L. Smith
Abstract: Because of the complexities involved in measuring and modeling the performance and properties of finished fuels, the scientific community must often use surrogate mixtures, especially in the absence of consensus standard mixtures. While surrogate mi ...

56. Evaluation of the Physicochemical Authenticity of Aviation Kerosene Surrogate Mixtures Part II: Analysis and Prediction of Thermophysical Properties
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 7/19/2010
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Marcia L Huber
Abstract: In part I of this series of papers, we presented an evaluation strategy that can be applied to surrogate mixtures for finished fuels. This strategy uses the advanced distillation curve approach to evaluate the surrogate in terms of physicochemical a ...

57. Thermodynamic, Transport, and Chemical Properties of Reference JP-8
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6659
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 7/14/2010
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Marcia L Huber, Arno R Laesecke, Eric W Lemmon, Mark O McLinden, Stephanie L Outcalt, Richard A Perkins, Beverly L. Smith, Jason A Widegren
Abstract: This report contains a summary of research conducted to develop a standard or accepted set of thermophysical properties for the aviation kerosene, JP-8. This report is the culmination of a three year effort that included the participation of most of ...

58. Standard Reference Materials for Analysis of Dietary Supplements
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 6/1/2010
Authors: Katherine E Sharpless, David Lee Duewer
Abstract: NIST, in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements (NIH-ODS) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is producing Standard Reference Materials (SRMs) for dietary supplements.  This paper describes the how t ...

60. Thermal Decomposition of RP-2 with Stabilizing Additives
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 5/7/2010
Authors: Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The thermal decomposition of RP-2 and mixtures of RP-2 with four different additives has been investigated. The mixtures with RP-2 contained one of the following: 5 % /trans/-decahydronaphthalene (decalin); 5 % 1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalene (tetralin ...
