Abstract:

Research efforts on the formation and analysis of polymer carbon electrodes to serve as oxygen electrodes and on the synthesis of porphyrins and porphyrazines for study as oxygen reduction catalysts in conjunction with polymer carbon electrodes are described. The report also presents a very simple but highly accurate model of detonation which ignores viscosity, diffusion, and heat conduction. The salient features of the model are unimolecular reaction, kinetics with starvation, balance laws, and a covolume equation of state. Author
