51. Advanced Distillation Curve Analysis on Ethyl Levulinate as a Diesel Fuel Oxygenate and a Hybrid Biodiesel Fuel
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 3/10/2011
Authors: Bret Windom, Tara M Lovestead, Mark Mascal, Edward Nikitin, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: Diminishing petroleum reserves, the potential of supply disruptions, price volatility, as well as environmental considerations resulting from polluting emissions, have led to development of alternative liquid fuels and fuel additives produced from re ...

52. Comparison of Biomass-Derived Turbine Fuels with the Composition-Explicit Distillation Curve Method
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 3/6/2011
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Evgenii Baibourine
Abstract: In recent years, civilian and military users of aviation kerosene have been interested in expanding the scope of fuel feed stocks to include non-petroleum sources. The most well known examples of such alternative sources of fuel are the Fisher-Trops ...

53. Improvements in the Measurement of Distillation Curves. 5. Reduced Pressure Advanced Distillation Curve Method
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 1/6/2011
Authors: Bret Windom, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The distillation curve is the only practical measurement used to characterize the vapor/liquid equilibrium (volatility) of a complex mixture. In earlier work, we described an improved method and apparatus for distillation curve measurement at atmosph ...

54. A calorimetric and equilibrium investigation of the reaction {methyl ferulate(aq) + H2O(l) = methanol(aq) + ferulic acid(aq)}
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 1/3/2011
Authors: Robert Nathan Goldberg, Michael J Selig, Stephen R. Decker, Brian E Lang
Abstract: Microcalorimetry and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) have been used to conduct a thermodynamic investigation of the reaction: {methyl ferulate(aq) + H2O(l) = methanol(aq) + ferulic acid(aq), as catlyzed by feruloyl esterase. Values of ...

55. CRC Handbook of Basic Tables for Chemical Analysis
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 12/13/2010
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Paris D.N. Svoronos
Abstract: Contains tables for chemical analysis

56. Novel Reduced Pressure-Balance Syringe for Chromatographic Analysis
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 11/19/2010
Authors: Bret Windom, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: When withdrawing a fluid sample from an apparatus at reduced pressures for additional chromatographic analyses, a gas tight plunger syringe proves ineffective as it does not create a substantial pressure differential to pull a fluid from a reduced pr ...

57. 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 ...

58. 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 ...

59. 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 ...

60. 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 ...
