Time-of-flight Mass Spectrometry Studies of Flame Inhibitors.
For Reference Only At Bureau Libraries :19 pages
Gaseous products resulting from rapid pyrolysis of coal and coal/inhibitor mixtures by a ruby laser and a flashtube were monitored on-line by time-of-flight mass spectrometry. The distribution of stable gases from the coal is not greatly influenced by the addition of small quantities of powdered flame inhibitors. Preliminary studies of the reaction of elementary radicals with coal and coal/inhibitor mixtures are described. The different types of experiments are discussed with regard to possible modification and application to studies of flame inhibitor action.
