Title: Material comprising two different non-metallic parrticles having different particle sizes for use in solar reactor

Abstract

Disclosed herein is a composite particle comprising a first non-metallic particle in which is dispersed a second non-metallic particle, where the first non-metallic particle and the second non-metallic particle are inorganic; and where a chemical composition of the first non-metallic particle is different from a chemical composition of the second non-metallic particle; and where the first non-metallic particle and the second non-metallic particle are metal oxides, metal carbides, metal nitrides, metal borides, metal silicides, metal oxycarbides, metal oxynitrides, metal boronitrides, metal carbonitrides, metal borocarbides, or a combination thereof.

  • A method for reclaiming a metallic material from a article including a non-metallic friable substrate. The method comprising crushing the article into a plurality of pieces. An acidic solution capable of dissolving the metallic material is provided dissolving the metallic material in the acidic material to form an etchant effluent. The etchant effluent is separated from the friable substrate. A precipitation agent, capable of precipitating the metallic material, is added to the etchant effluent to precipitate out the metallic material from the etchant effluent. The metallic material is then recovered.
  • A fuel rod is described for a nuclear reactor fuel assembly, comprising: (a) a hollow cladding tube; (b) a pair of end plugs connected to and sealing the cladding tube at opposite ends thereof; (c) a plurality of fuel pellets contained on the tube and being composed of fissile material having a single enrichment the value of which is at the level of the maximum enrichment loading of the rod, the pellets having provided in a stack having one end disposed adjacent to one of the end plugs and an opposite end disposed remote from the other of the endmore » plugs; and (d) a plenum spring disposed in the tube between the other end plug and the opposite end of the pellet stack for retaining the pellets in a stack form; (e) at least some of the fuel pellets having an annular configuration and at least other of the fuel pellets having a solid configuration; (f) each of some of the annular fuel pellets having an annulus of a first size; (e) each of other of the annual fuel pellets having an annulus of a second size different from the first size, whereby graduation of axial enrichment loading is provided between the annual fuel pellets of the fuel rod.« less
  • A relatively thin, flat or planar battery is disclosed which includes one or more cells in series relationship each comprising a planar anode in superposed relationship with a planar cathode and a separator disposed intermediate and extending substantially coextensive the facing surfaces of the anode and cathode possessing marginal portions and an aqueous electrolyte permeable central portion. Each cell includes an aqueous electrolyte disposed in the central portion of the separator and in contact with the facing surfaces of both the anode and the cathode and an electrically nonconducting, sealant extending intermediate and providing adhesive contact between the marginal portionsmore » of the separatos and next adjacent facing surfaces. Each battery is designed to include a planar anode and/or cathode next adjacent a surface of the battery which electrode includes a conductive metal sheet; a gas permeable, water-vapor impermeable plastic sheet and an electrochemically active negative or positive material. At least one of the conductive metal sheets is designed to specifically include one or more orifices extending through the sheet to conduct from the battery gas generated within its cells.« less
  • A method is described for preparing a catalyst composition for processing high nitrogen-containing oils comprising a boron-containing crystalline material having the structure of zeolite ZSM-5, ZSM-11, ZSM-12, Beta or Nu-1. The sequential steps of synthesizing a boron-containing crystalline material having the structure of zeolite ZSM-5, ZSM-11, ZSM-12, Beta or Nu-1 are: drying the crystalline material at a temperature of from about ambient to less than about 170/sup 0/C; calcining the dried crystalline material in an oxygen- and water-free environment of anhydrous ammonia, anhydrous nitrogen, other anhydrous inert gases or a mixture thereof at a temperature of from about 200/sup 0/more » to about 600/sup 0/C to minimize hydrolysis of boron in the boron-containing crystalline material; adsorbing ammonia on the calcined crystalline material; contacting the crystalline material with an ion-exchange solution at a pH of from about 7 to about 11; compositing the ion-exchange solution contacted crystalline material with an inorganic oxide material; drying the composite at a temperature of from about ambient to less than about 170/sup 0/C and calcining the dried composite at a temperature of from about 200/sup 0/ to about 600/sup 0/C.« less
