Abstract:

The heat of dissociation of nitrogen trifluoride and the heat of reaction of sulfur with nitrogen trifluoride have been determined and are reported. The heat of formation of aqueous hydrogen fluoride has been determined from the nitrogen trifluoride work and are compared with the previously reported data. Research in progress on TVOPA, lithium-doped Beane, and the reaction of nitrogen trifluoride and cyanogen is described. The work on sample purification and the synthesis of trifluoromethoxydifluoroamine is also recorded. The results of the study of the combustion kinetics of Beane, nitrocellulose, TMETN, and DEGDN are discussed.
