Specially designed apparatus for use in the studies of the thermodynamic properties of BeCl, BeCl2, BeO and Be3N2 was constructed. These items include an electron bombardment furnace-Southard drop calorimeter combination for the study of the heat capacity and heat of fusion of BeO an ultra-high vacuum system 10 to the -10th power mm of Hg for the study of the vapor pressures of BeCl2 and Be3N2 and a vacuum apparatus for the molecular flow effusion study of the thermodynamics of BeClg. Preliminary values for the heat of formation of BeClg and the heat of sublimation of BeCl2 were obtained.
