Abstract:

Formation of 021 delta by rection of Cl2 gas with basic H202 liquid was studied using a small scale batch reactor. Effect on 021 delta yield of certain reactionreactor parameters were evaluated. Parameters included molarity of base and presence of Cl- in initial reaction solution, use of Br2 as reactant, depth of Cl2 injector in solution, area of cooled trap surface, and use of halocarbon coating on flow tube walls. Use of Cl2, base molarity, and trap condition were areas in which greatest effects were observed. Mixtures of argon and I2 were added to the flowing output from the generator and the high-field 1.7-2.4 T EPR spectrum was scanned. No I2 or I species were observed. Values of g exp for two previously unreported EPR lines in the J3 level of 021 delta were obtained.
