Abstract:

The present study was designed to produce infrared emission by means of exothermic reaction between a gas and a liquid aerosol. We have examined a number of gas-aerosol systems employing acid-base reactions, and have observed significant levels of radiation from the reaction of chlorosulfonic acid aerosol with gaseous ammonia and water. Other systems, including sulfuric acid-ammonia, octanoic acid-ammonia and octylamine-hydrogen chloride, have produced detectable levels of radiation. Some methods for the investigation of emission from gas-aerosol reactions have been explored, and the results of these studies utilizing a chlorosulfonic aerosol system are presented. Author
