Abstract:

The investigation of electrochemical energy conversion systems has involved two specific tasks. The first has dealt with measurements of the solubility of oxygen in organic liquids which might provide the basis for high energy batteries. The second task deals with the mathematical analysis of electrochemical energy conversion devices. Attention was given to the solution of kinetic equations describing the hydrogen-deuterium exchange of an hydrocarbon on a catalytic surface saturated with deuterium. Kinetic expressions for a five step successive reaction for methane are solved by matrix techniques. These techniques should be conveniently handled by a digital computer and the expressions can be corrected for temperature, flow rates, and other experimental parameters.
