Abstract:

A membrane electrode as a detector for pentaborane gas is described. The fastest-responding detector has a gelled electrolyte covering the electrode. An infrared detection system for mounting on an Avco shock tube is described. A literature search dealing with the analysis and nature of contaminants in cryogenic fluorine and hydrogen is reported. An infrared fingerprint was obtained for the solid materials from a pentaborane-hydrazine firing. It is shown that these products are very similar to commercial boron nitride. A method for determining hydridic hydrogen on a microscale was developed. Author
