Abstract:

The heat of combustion of TVOPA, in oxygen has been determined to be -1613 or - 3.5 kcalmole. From this value and from previous data, the delta Hf 298.15 is calculated to be -217.4 or - 3.5 kcalmole. Work in progress includes the heat of combustion of P-BEP by a similar technique. Trifluoromethoxy difluoramine has been synthesized and purified, and the heat of explosion of this compound is being determined. Additional studies on the combustion kinetics of the decomposition of Beane have been made. The combustion reaction of Beane with nitrous oxide has been investigated. Emphasis was placed on the study of oxygen combustion of Beane. The reaction was followed by monitoring the appropriate radical absorption lines with our recording apparatus.
