Title: Non-Reactor Micro-Component Development

Abstract

This book chapter will appear in a book being published by Wiley VCH, titled "Micro-Instrumentation for High Throughput Experimentation and Process Intensification." It represents a summary of microchannel-based research in all areas of non-reactive process development, such as heat exchange, mixing, emulsification, phase separation, distillation, mass-transfer, and biological applications.

  • A series of BaF{sub 2} crystals doped with 10% mole fraction of each rare earth element has been grown, and the effect of these dopants on the slow luminescence (due to anionic self trapped excitons) and fast luminescence (due to core-valence transitions) has been studied. While significant suppression was observed for both components, the best dopants for suppressing the slow component of barium fluoride (up to 25--50%) while maintaining the luminosity of the fast component are La, Y, and Lu. The luminescence of Ba{sub 0.9}Eu{sub 0.1}F{sub 2.1} is almost entirely fast (>90%), but with low light output. For two raremore » earth dopants (La and Gd), the effect of slow and fast component suppression was studied as a function of concentration (Ba{sub 1{minus}x}R{sub x}F{sub 2+x} with x{<=}0.5 for R=La and x{<=}0.3 for R=Gd). The suppression is non-linear with dopant concentration, with the relative degree of slow component suppression correlated with the melting point of these samples.« less
  • Evaluation methods of creep and fatigue interaction damage of boiler components were established for 2.25Cr1Mo steel. Creep and fatigue damage was brought about at high temperature to simulate real applied stress and microstructural change during service operation. Fatigue and creep-fatigue life was affected by surface oxide scale conditions. To minimize oxide scale effects, fatigue and creep-fatigue test were conducted at low vacuum to cancel out surface effects. Initiation cracks of fatigue and creep-fatigue formed only on the surface, which were connected to oxide scale cracks, thus showing that the oxide scale growth rate is less under vacuum conditions and thatmore » fatigue life increases about 5 to 10 times as much in an air environment the same as the test conditions. Fatigue life depends on initial small forming and propagating cracks. Creep-fatigue life assessment can be made based on the creep and fatigue damage linear summation rule without surface conditions effects. Fatigue damage in creep-fatigue should be evaluated under atmospheric conditions the same as those of the fatigue test. Fatigue and creep-fatigue damage occurs only on field part surfaces. The best evaluation method by NDE would be one which makes possible crack detection and measurement of crack length.« less
  • Lignin is an important component of biomass, and the decomposition of its thermal deconstruction products is important in pyrolysis and gasification. In this chapter, we investigate the unimolecular pyrolysis chemistry through the use of singly and doubly substituted benzene molecules that are model compounds representative of lignin and its primary pyrolysis products. These model compounds are decomposed in a heated micro-reactor, and the products, including radicals and unstable intermediates, are measured using photoionization mass spectrometry and matrix isolation infrared spectroscopy. We show that the unimolecular chemistry can yield insight into the initial decomposition of these species. At pyrolysis and gasificationmore » severities, singly substituted benzenes typically undergo bond scission and elimination reactions to form radicals. Some require radical-driven chain reactions. For doubly substituted benzenes, proximity effects of the substituents can change the reaction pathways.« less
  • Nuclear energy, as a source of electricity, continues to gain throughout the world. The number of countries outside the US with announced nuclear energy programs rose from 46 to 52 in a little more than a year. Electrical MWe capacity of total plant commitments rose 20%, to 436,012 MWe (586 reactors); nuclear plant orders are up from 12 units (12,171 MWe) ordered in 1977, to 29 units (27,711 MWe) scheduled to be placed on the books in 1978. Data are tabulated on 586 commercial generating units, 151 operable reactors, 155 under construction, 45 on order, and 235 in some statemore » of development, all outside the US. (MCW)« less
