Abstract:

An experimental facility for the study of high temperature-kinetics in the CFO reaction system was designed and constructed. Apparatus for the production of high purity tetrafluoroethylene and carbonyl fluoride is described. The reaction vessel design, gas analysis system, furnace, and temperature measurement and control systems are also described. A discussion of the various solid support-stationary phase combinations tested for the gas chromatographic separation of the compounds N2, O2, F2, CO, CO2, COF2, CF4, C2F4, C2F6, C3F6 and C3F8 is included. It is concluded that Flurolube and Silicone Oil DC-FS-1265 are the most promising stationary phases for the required analysis. It is also noted that activated silica gel is useful for the analysis. Finally the capabilities of a Fortran IV thermochemical program which is presently being adapted for the necessary equilibrium computations are described. Author
