Abstract:

The report describes the thermodynamic and computational phases of a survey of exothermic chemical reactions. Computer programs were prepared and enthalpies were obtained for all inorganic reactions for which data were adequate. Tabulations included reactions of metals with oxides, fluorides, chlorides, sulfides, phosphides, azides, nitrides, silicides, carbides, nitrates, nitrites, chlorates, perchlorates, chromates, and borides. Data for a total of about 20,000 reactions were obtained. The data for the individual reactions included a balanced chemical equation, and enthalpies and heats of reaction per unit weight and volume. Supplementary tabulations included listings in order of energies of the most energetic reactions in each class, graphical presentations of the reactions of all the metals with various oxidizing agents plotted against enthalpies, similar plots for the reactions of all the oxidants in different classes with various metals, and a total recapitulation of all the reactions in each category in grid form in descending order of energy per unit weight and per unit volume.
