  • The changes in relative viscosity which occur when nylon 66 is irradiated with 2-Mev electrons under an oxygen-free atmosphere under various conditions were observed. A mechanism is proposed which reconciles all of these observations; and on the basis of this postalated mechanism, yields of chain breaks and crosslinks are calculated. The effect of the presence of a small concentration of a vinyl monomer (acrylic acid) in the polymer during irradiation on degradation and crosslinking is also considered. The rate of penetration of oxygen into irradiated polyamides was measured. There is a marked reduction in penetration rate which results from themore » presence of free radicals in the fiber and the irreversible reaction that results. The data are treated by an approximate diffusion equation, and estimates of true diffusion coefficients are given. The effect of filament diameter on the extent of degradation which occurs when fibers of nylon 66 are irradiated and then exposed to air was investigated. The marked dependence of degradation on fiber thickness is related qualitatively to the data on rate of oxygen penetration. (auth)« less
  • Glass transition temperatures have been measured at 20 mol % intervals in 55 binary molecular liquid systems and the results used as a basis for (a) estimating by extrapolations the glass transition temperatures of many common organic liquids which do not vitrify in the pure state and thereby (b) identifying the various structural features of a molecule which collectively determine the magnitude of its T/sub g/. In most cases, simple linear composition dependences are observed for T/sub g/. The thermodynamic significance of dT/sub g//dx is discussed. In the case of cyclohexanol T/sub g/ estimated for the liquid exceeds the knownmore » value of ''T/sub g/'' for the plastic crystal phase by some 10/sup 0/C. The T/sub g/ estimated for CCl/sub 4/ and CHCl/sub 4/ exceed by large intervals the T/sub g/ values reported for vapor-deposited amorphous phases of these substances. 3 figures, 1 table.« less
  • The electric field dependence of the structure and dynamics of water at 77 K, i.e., below the glass transition temperature (136 K), is investigated using molecular dynamics simulations. Transitions are found at two critical field strengths, denoted E1 and E2. The transition around E1 ≈ 3.5 V/nm is characterized by the onset of significant structural disorder, a rapid increase in the orientational polarization, and a maximum in the dynamical fluctuations. At E2 ≈ 40 V/nm, the system crystallizes in discrete steps into a body-centered-cubic unit cell that minimizes the potential energy by simultaneous superpolarization of the water molecular dipoles andmore » maximization of the intermolecular hydrogen bonds. The stepwise and discontinuous increase of the orientational polarization with the increasing electric field indicates that the dipole relaxation in the electric field is highly cooperative.« less
  • Degradation-promoting action of a series of ferrous and titanium alloys on CF{sub 3}O(CF{sub 2}O){sub x}(CF{sub 2}-CF{sub 2}O){sub y}CF{sub 3}-based Z25 fluids and the inhibition effectiveness of several classes of additives were investigated. Four types of additives--phosphines, phosphates, phospha-s-triazines, and diphosphatetraazacyclooctatetraene--were studied in two batches of Z25 fluid, P28 and P151. In the absence of inhibitors, titanium alloys were more detrimental than the ferrous metals, but the additives were more effective in the presence of titanium alloys. Phosphate esters totally inhibited the decomposition of P151 at 330 C over 24 h in both types of alloys. The other additives were effectivemore » at lower temperatures. The responsiveness of fluid to an additive was found to be batch dependent.« less
