  • The thermal stability and structural changes of well-crystallized Li{sub 4}Mn{sub 5}O{sub 12} powder with a grain size of 0.1-0.3 {mu}m have been investigated with thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and high-temperature X-ray diffraction measurements (HT-XRD). Li{sub 4}Mn{sub 5}O{sub 12} crystallites are stable at temperatures up to 600{degrees}C in oxygen or air, but decompose to spinel LiMn{sub 2}O{sub 4} and monoclinic Li{sub 2}MnO{sub 3} at temperatures between 530 and 680{degrees}C, and to LiMnO{sub 2} and Mn{sub 3}O{sub 4} at temperatures above 680{degrees}C in nitrogen. No apparent structural change was detected with XRD and HT-XRD when Li{sub 4}Mn{sub 5}O{sub 12} wasmore » heated in O{sub 2} up to 700{degrees}C, but a reversible weight loss/gain due to the evolution/uptake or oxygen was observed by TGA between 400-700{degrees} C. The deficiency of oxygen in Li{sub 4}Mn{sub 3}O{sub 12-{delta}} is found to be in the region 0<{delta}< 0.5.« less
  • PBX 9501 is an explosive which will be utilized in future programs. As such, much interest has been expressed in the chemical assay of this material. The purpose of the study was to develop an accurate, precise determination of the two major components in the NP. In this technique a sample of PBX 9501 is extracted with methylethylketone (MEK). The residue from this extract is then leached with hexane, evaporated to dryness and then taken up in MEK. An aliquot is injected into an LC system using a Partisil 5 column and an 85-15 Hexane/MEK carrier. The separated species aremore » detected with an RI indicator and compared with a calibration curve. The method is unbiased and relative precisions of analysis are 2.5% and 3% for BDNPF and BDNPA, respectively.« less
  • A reliable accelerated fuel stability test regimen has been developed and applied to the study of the storage stability of a shale derived diesel fuel marine (DFM). The results of a survey of nitrogen compounds as dopants in a stable shale DFM base fuel indicate that some pyrroles and indoles may play significant roles in storage stability. A complete stability test matrix has been developed for the temperatures of 43, 65 and 80/sup 0/C, for time periods between 4 and 179 days, and for a ten-fold concentration range of a model dopant, 2,5-dimethylpyrrole (DMP). Stability was defined by the amountmore » of total insoluble material (filterable sediment and adherent gum) produced after stress, and also by the amount of titratable peroxide present in the filtrates of stressed fuel samples. A very regular pattern for insolubles formation was found within the test matrix. Deposit formation rates exhibited a first-order dependence on DMP concentration, with an apparent activation energy of 11-12 kcal/mol. The sediment was found to contain 12% nitrogen and 18-20% oxygen irrespective of the stress conditions employed.« less
