Identity and near identity rates and equilibria for methyl group transfers between arenesulfonate ions
Rates and equilibria were measured for the reaction of methyl arenesulfonates with arenesulfonates in sulfolane. The identity rates for a series of arenesulfonates were measured at a variety of temperatures; a Hammett P ...
Kinetic spectroscopy of transient species using color center lasers
A versatile and sensitive method of kinetic spectroscopy for the near infrared region has been developed. The system uses a computer controlled color center to investigate the high resolution infrared absorption spectra ...
Bond activation by photoexcited metal atoms
This work involves a study of ground state and photoexcited metal atoms reacting with ethylene, cyclopropane, acetylene and ethylene oxide in an argon matrix at 12°K. The reactions were followed by infrared spectroscopy. ...
Some applications of calorimetric techniques
Four calorimetric techniques -- Oxygen Bomb, Fluorine Bomb, Solution, and Levitation Calorimetry -- were applied to obtain new thermochemical data for a variety of organic and inorganic compounds. Oxygen bomb calorimetry ...
