Abstract:

An apparatus for preparing relatively large quantities of gaseous hydrogen azide was de signed. The hydrogen azide prepared can be used for reactions in the gas phase as well as in solutions. Methods for preparing sodium, potassium, ammonium, calcium, strontium and barium azides were developed. An attempt was made to prepare lead azide by reacting hydrogen azide with lead oxide. The formation of hydra zine sulfate was observed when hydrazoic acid was passed through concentrated sulfuric acid. Author
