Title: VAPOUR PRESSURE OF ISOTOPIC LIQUIDS. II. Ne AND A ABOVE BOILING-POINT

Abstract

In order to extend previous studies of vapcr pressure of isotopic liquids in a wider temperature range, a new cryostat was butlt. The single stage separation factor alpha of the isotopic pairs Ar/sup 36/- Ar/sup 40/ and Ne/sup 20/- Ne/sup 22/ was measured up to a vapor pressure of 12 atmospheres using natural isotopic mixtures. The logarithum of the vapor pressure ratio of the pure isotopes was derived from a and found to be linearly dependent on I/T: In (p36)/p40) = 1.31(1/T)-8.95 x l0/sup -3/ for argon from 83 to 120 tained K, and in (p20/p22) = 2.510(1/-T)--5.673 x 10/sup -2/ for neon from 25 to 40 tained K. A brief discussion of the results is given.
