Abstract:

This third quarterly progress report covers research in halogen passivation accomplished during the period from 1 May 1966 to 31 July 1966. Various passivation techniques involving a range of pressures and concentrations of fluorine gas and interhalogens were investigated using stainless steel 316 and Monel 400 powders. The effectiveness of the passivation processes was determined by measuring the additional reaction of the treated powders with fluorine gas. Effects of atmospheric moisture on fluoride films were investigated. Reflection electron diffraction patterns were made of fluoride films formed on copper before and after exposure to atmospheric moisture.
