Analytical chemistry associated with the destruction of chemical weapons by NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Analytical Chemistry Associated with the Destruction of Chemical Weapons( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the major problems associated with the disposal of chemical weapons is that the agents have degraded over time, some quite seriously. Detecting and identifying the products of this decomposition are necessary prerequisites to the safe, complete and environmentally benign destruction of stockpiled weapons. The book presents and discusses both basic and novel techniques in a variety of areas of analytical chemistry which are relevant to achieving the ultimate destruction of chemical weapons. Presentations address sample collection and preparation, mass spectrometry, chromatographic techniques, NMR, and air monitoring techniques. The work shows that analytical methods do exist to effectively support the destruction of chemical munitions. While further research is needed, the book provides an excellent baseline for further advances in the field

Environmental aspects of converting CW facilities to peaceful purposes by Raymond R McGuire( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

NATO and the International Science and Technology Center in Moscow jointly sponsored the March 1999 workshop in Speiz, Switzerland. One of primary findings was that essentially no information is available about chronic effects of low doses of chemical agents, and more research needs to be conducted to determine whether data from other toxic and often similar materials can be of help. Among the topics of the 21 papers published are mathematical modeling in the problems of chemical and ecological safety, oxidative decontamination, general approaches to analyzing arsenic-containing warfare agents, and thermal plasma as a novel technique for water decontamination.

Environmental Aspects of Converting CW Facilities to Peaceful Purposes by Raymond R McGuire( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is hardly any information available on the chronic effects of low doses of chemical warfare agents, but there is a growing body of data on the chronic effects of exposure to other toxic materials (PAHs, PABs and the like). One of the four main themes of the book is thus the chronic effects of extended exposure to low doses of toxic material. There is some important new work on the effects of such materials on cellular material and genes. The book's second main theme is the decontamination of CW facilities, centring on two topics: bioremediation and concrete. Both before and after decontamination, one needs to be able to analyze residual toxics at trace level - possibly even at parts per trillion or parts per quadrillion levels. Current techniques for use at these levels do not permit the identification of compounds. Neither LIDAR nor solid phase microextraction, used for air monitoring, offer this sort of sensitivity. Toxic waste has to be disposed of, and plasma arc technology and chemical oxidation are discussed as techniques to reduce toxicity to acceptable levels - if such can be specified. The eternal question in such matters, of course, is "How clean is clean enough?", and the discussion of this theme outlines two approaches: a regulatory approach and one based on quantitative risk analysis

Mass Spectral Fragmentation of a Novel Cyclooctane: 2,4-Dimethyl-7,7-Dinitro-1,3,5-Trioxacyclooctane by Raymond R McGuire( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A novel cyclooctane containing structural features unique to both geminal polynitroalkanes and cyclic trioxane acetals afforded an initial electron impact fragmentation analogous to cyclic acetals. Only in the latter stages of the fragmentation pathway did specied appear that are characteristic of geminal polynitroaliphatic and nitroalkane molecules. (Author)
An investigation of Chapman-Jouget detonation theory using isotopic labelling by Raymond R McGuire( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The explosive, bis-trinitroethyl adipate (BTNEA), was isotopically labelled in such a manner as to provide information on how an explosive breaks up during the detonation process. The material was fired in a detonation calorimeter giving product composition and heat release that are representative of the isentropic expansion of the detonation products. Isotope ratios observed in the detonation products were compared to those in the original explosive. The observed products are compared to those calculated with a thermodynamic- hydrodynamic computer code
Parameterization of the BKW and JCZ Equations of State for Explosives by R. Martin Guidry( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The BKW equation of state, an empirical equation of state, for predicting detonation properties of explosives, has been successfully reparameterized. It satisfactorily predicts not only detonation pressures and velocities but also the detonation product composition for both ideal and non- ideal explosive composition. An attempt was made to parameterize the JCZ3 equation of state which is derived from first principles. The attempt was unsuccessful. It is suggested that revision of the equation in the low pressure regime may be necessary
An improved procedure for the synthesis of fluorodinitroethyl and trinitroethyl esters of carboxylic acids by Robert E Cochoy( )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A process has been developed for synthesizing trinitroethyl and fluorodinitroethyl-esters of carboxylic acids in greater than 90 percent yield. This procedure involves mixing the acid and alcohol together in trifluoroacetic anhydride, and stirring at ambient temperature for 1 1/2 hours. The product is isolated by pouring the reaction mixture into a cooled water solution of K2HPO4 and either filtering or extracting with methylene chloride. The properties of a number of sample compounds are described

The NMR spectra of acetylated[3]ferrocenophanes : an example of non-bonding orbital anisotropy by Raymond R McGuire( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The nuclear magnetic resonance spectra of a series of mono- and di-acetyl(3)ferrocenophanes have been investigated by computer matching and NMR shift reagents. Accurate chemical shifts and coupling constants have been obtained. Changes in chemical shift of the 'aromatic' or 'ring' protons induced by the introduction of an acetyl group into various positions of the cyclopentadiene rings cannot be explained solely by the the anisotropy of the acetyl groups. These differences in chemical shift have been interpreted in terms of the anisotropy of the non-bonding hybridized 'd' orbitals of the iron atom and the perturbations of these orbitals caused by the introduction of the acetyl group.

One-Step Synthesis of Polynitroaliphatic Acetals and Ethers( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A general, one step, high yield reaction has been demonstrated that produces a variety of polynitroaliphatic acetal and ether products. Reaction condition are mild; purification is simple; and, no costly high pressure of high temperature laboratory techniques are necessary to produce a variety of new polynitroaliphatic compounds not available from previously described synthetic methods. These novel energetic polynitroaliphatic acetals and ethers could provide precursor compounds for eventual application as energetic binder or plasticizer components in solid propellant and/or explosive formulations. A variety of activated alkenes and one alkyne reacted with polynitroaliphatic alcohols directly to produce novel new acetal and ether compounds. Difunctional polynitroalcohols reacted similarly with divinyl ether to produce low molecular weight acetal prepolymer compounds which were either vinyl or hydroxyl terminated. In one case, fluorodinitromethane was added to an alkene, however, the resultant product proved unstable at room temperature and gradually decomposed.
