Abstract:

Investigation of transport parameters of organic nitro-compounds in solution in nonaqueous electrolytes. An experimental system to measure conductivity was completed, and testing of m-DNB in liquid ammonia was begun. Solution conductance reached a maximum as temperature was increased from -60 to -20C. In addition, the solubility of m-DNB in dimethylsulfoxide was determined, and conductivity found to be about 0.001ohmcm in a solution saturated with LiCl or LiNO3. Attempts were made to identify by IR spectra the electroreduction products of organic nitro-compounds in acid ammonia solutions. Nitrobenzene undergoes a complete four-electron reduction to phenyl hydroxylamine, as identified by its IR spectrum. However, di-substituted nitrobenzene compounds could not be identified by IR spectra, probably because of side reactions. An information storage and retrieval program based on use of the IBM-1401 computer and an IBM keyword-in-context indexing system is described. This program is used to provide indexes of both reports and PIC briefs in the chemoelectric energy-conversion field. Author
