111. The Internal Fluid Mechanics of Explosive Trace Detectors using Computational Fluid Dynamics
Series: OTHER
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 5/1/2009
Authors: Matthew E Staymates, Wayne Smith, John G Gillen
Abstract: Efforts are underway in the Surface and Microanalysis Science Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology to study the vapor transport mechanisms inside explosive trace detection instruments (ETD s) and produce standard test materi ...

112. Thermal Decomposition Kinetics of Kerosene-based Rocket Propellants. 1. Comparison of RP-1 and RP-2
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 9/11/2009
Authors: Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The decomposition kinetics of the kerosene-based rocket propellants RP-1 and RP-2 was studied. For RP-2, decomposition reactions were performed at 375, 400, 425, and 450 {degree}C. For RP-1, decomposition reactions were only performed at 450 {degree} ...

113. Thermal Decomposition Kinetics of Kerosene-based Rocket Propellants. 2. RP-2 with Three Additives
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 9/9/2009
Authors: Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The thermal decomposition of RP-2 with three potential stabilizing additives was investigated. The additives were 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinoline (THQ), 1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalene (tetralin) and the additive package that is used to make JP-8+100 (here ...

114. Thermal Decomposition of RP-1, RP-2, and Mixtures of RP-2 With Stabilizing Additives
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 11/3/2008
Authors: Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: ----- FOR POLICY REVIEW ONLY ----- The thermal decomposition of RP-1, RP-2, and mixtures of RP-2 with three different additives has been investigated. The mixtures with RP-2 contained 5% 1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalene (tetralin), 5% 1,2,3,4-tetrahy ...

115. 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 ...

116. 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 ...

117. Trace detection and competitive ionization of erythritol tetranitrate in mixtures using direct analysis in real time mass spectrometry
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 4/9/2015
Authors: Thomas P Forbes, Edward Ryan Sisco
Abstract: Direct analysis in real time (DART) mass spectrometry was used for trace detection of the nitrate ester explosive, erythritol tetranitrate (ETN), and its sugar alcohol precursor, erythritol. The present investigation revealed the impact of competitiv ...

118. Uncertainties in Electron Probe Microanalysis
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 3/12/2010
Authors: Ryna B. Marinenko, Stefan D Leigh
Abstract: This tutorial discusses the importance of citing valid uncertainties when reporting analytical results and the need for a universally accepted approach for evaluating uncertainties. Today, the CIPM procedure has been accepted by numerous internation ...

119. Variability of The Rocket Propellants RP-1, RP-2, and TS-5: Application of a Composition- and Enthalpy-Explicit Distillation Curve Method
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 12/3/2008
Authors: Lisa S. Ott, Amelia B. Hadler, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: We have recently introduced several important improvements in the measurement of distillation curves for complex fluids.  This method is a significant improvement over current approaches, featuring a composition-explicit data channel for each di ...

120. Vibrationally-Resolved Sum-Frequency Generation With Broad Bandwidth Infrared Pulses
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 10/15/1998
Authors: Lee J Richter, T Petralli-Mallow, John Carter Stephenson
Abstract: We present a novel procedure for vibrationally-resolved sum-frequency generation (SFG) in which a broad-bandwidth IR pulse is mixed with a narrow-bandwidth visible pulse. The resultant SFG spectrum is dispersed with a spectrograph and detected in pa ...
