Abstract:

This document is the final report on Contract F04611-68-C-0012. Mass spectrometric studies of various vapor species produced in the H2-BeO and in the HCl-BeO systems under Knudsen conditions were carried out at temperatures up to 2485 degrees K. Appropriate equilibrium reactions involving these species were used to determine the heat of formation of BeOHg. Examination of the mass spectrum for vapor species having the composition BeOn.H2O, where n 1 through 5, was conducted. Detectable quantities of such species were not found to be present in the H2-BeO system. Reaction of graphite and beryllium oxide was studied by means of the torsion effusion techniques. The remaining effort was directed to the redetermination of the fragmentation pattern of the vapor species in the LiF system. A mass spectrometric technique involving beam modulation and phase sensitive detection was used.
