Abstract:

The following information is summarized from literature sources 1 an improved method for obtaining N2O2 and KO2 by direct oxidation of metal with oxygen is reported. The interaction of NaO2 with CO2 was studied all experiments were made in the presence of water vapor. Above 25 C all reactions resulted in complete discharge of O and the formation of Na2CO3 over an intermediate phase of NaOH. Below 10 C only superoxide O was discharged peroxide O remained in the resultant compound, Na2C2O6. A practical method of obtaining Na2C2O6 which can be used as a mild oxidizer is discussed. The interaction of NaO2 or KO2 with CO is also discussed.
