Career Summary

Biography

Professor Dlugogorski is distinguished for his contributions to the field of industrial safety and environment protection, especially through innovative development of safe industrial processes. He has introduced new means to improve the performance of fire-fighting foams, thereby facilitating the development of new generation fluorine-free foams. He has made outstanding and sustained contributions to improving safety in the process industry, by modifying the existing technologies and developing safer industrial processes. For example, he resolved the reasons for large economic losses suffered by OneSteels Newcastle plant in its baghouse operations, as a consequence of a number of fires owing to spontaneous heating and ignition of zinc powder. The work has identified the chlorine impurity, introduced during galvanising, as the cause and has recommended changes in the operation of the plant. After their implementation, the plant experienced no additional fires due to self-heating.

Professors Kennedy and Dlugogorski have founded and have been leading a large research group, with a strong focus on process safety, and engaged in collaborative research and technology transfer. Professor Dlugogorskis achievements are recognised both within Australia and internationally, by a series of awards and prestigious invitations; for example by (i) Philip Thomas Medal of Excellence from the International Association of Fire Safety Science, which recognises the most significant contribution to the research into fire protection and fire prevention and (ii) ESSO Award of Excellence in Chemical Engineering, which recognises significant ongoing contributions to Chemical Engineering through innovations or a series of related publications over a number of years, and (iii) Eureka Prize for Environmental Research, for innovative research which enables ozone-depleting substances, especially CFCs, to be converted into environmentally benign compounds with an inherent economic value (with Professor Kennedy).

As another sign of his contributions to the research field, Professor Dlugogorski is invited, on average, once a year to deliver plenary and keynote addresses. They include those presented at well attended international conferences on Halon Options (USA), Fire Safety Science (Canada) and Fire Science and Technology (Japan; Should halons be destroyed or converted to useful products?), and the forthcoming 5th Int Symposium on Fire and Explosion Hazards (Edinburgh, Scotland). He is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (FTSE), Engineers Australia (FIEAust) and Royal Australian Chemistry Institute (FRACI).

Research Expertise
The research strengths of Professor Dlugogorski and his group are founded on his capacity to combine experimental and modelling work to address a specific technical problem. These technical issues are usually based on practical industry problems that require the broad expertise of the group members that he leads. The research discipline of process safety and environment protection is very multidisciplinary in nature, with applications to a number of industries.

© 2017 American Chemical Society. Dissolved organic matter (DOM) acts as an effective photochemical sensitizer that produces the singlet delta state of molecular oxygen (O 2 1 ¿ g ), a powerful oxidizer that removes aniline from aqueous solutions. However, the exact mode of this reaction, the p- to o-iminobenzoquinone ratio, and the selectivity of one over the other remain largely speculative. This contribution resolves these uncertainties. We report, for the first time, a comprehensive mechanistic and kinetic account of the oxidation of aniline with the singlet delta oxygen using B3LYP and M06 functionals in both gas and aqueous phases. Reaction mechanisms have been mapped out at E, H, and G scales. The 1,4-cycloaddition of O 2 1 ¿ g to aniline forms a 1,4-peroxide intermediate (M1), which isomerizes via a closed-shell mechanism t o generate a p-iminobenzoquinone molecule. On the other hand, the O 2 1 ¿ g ene-type reaction forms an o-iminobenzoquinone product when the hydroperoxyl bond breaks, splitting hydroxyl from the 1,2-hydroperoxide (M3) moiety. The gas-phase model predicts the formation of both p- and o-iminobenzoquinones. In the latter model, the M1 adduct displays the selectivity of up to 96%. A water-solvation model predicts that M1 decomposes further, forming only p-iminobenzoquinone with a rate constant of k = 1.85 × 10 9 (L/(mol s)) at T = 313 K. These results corroborate the recent experimental findings of product concentration profile in which p-iminobenzoquinonine represents the only detected product.

© 2017 American Chemical Society. This study develops technology for mitigation of NO x formed in thermal processes using recycled plastics such as polyethylene (PE). Experiments involve sample characterization, and thermogravimetric decomposition of PE under controlled atmospheres, with NO x concentration relevant to industrial applications. TGA-Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and NO x chemiluminescence serve to obtain the removal efficiency of NO x by fragments of pyrolyzing PE. Typical NO x removal efficiency amounts to 80%. We apply the isoconversional method to derive the kinetic parameters, and observe an increasing dependency of activation energy on the reaction progress. The activation energies of the process span 135 kJ/mol to 226 kJ/mol, and 188 kJ/mol to 268 kJ/mol, for neat and recycled PE, respectively, and the so-called compensation effect accounts for the natural logarithmic pre-exponential ln (A/min -1 ) factors of ca. 19-35 and 28-41, in the same order, depending on the PE conversion in the experimental interval of between 5 and 95%. The observed delay in thermal events of recycled PE reflects different types of PE in the plastic, as measurements of intrinsic viscosity indicate that, the recycled PE comprises longer linear chains. The present evaluation of isoconversional activation energies affords accurate kinetic modeling of both isothermal and nonisothermal decomposition of PE in NO x -doped atmosphere. Subsequent investigations will focus on the effect of mass transfer and the presence of oxygen, as reburning of NO x in large-scale combustors take place at higher temperatures than those included in the current study.

© 2017 Elsevier Ltd Large-eddy simulation (LES) with stochastic fields (SF) method is used to simulate a pool fire in a compartment for different distances from the compartment sidewalls. In our previous work (Jangi et al., 2016) [24], we have formulated and validated LES-SF method for modeling pool fires. Here we use the same approach to study the wall-fire interaction. For this purpose, two cases are presented. In one case the pool is located at the center of the compartment floor far from all sidewalls, referred to as case C. In another case the pool is in the vicinity of a sidewall, referred to as case W. In both cases, it is shown that pool fires are not a fully non-premixed flame but they can involve some levels of premixed combustion, especially in the form of ignition process in fuel-lean mixtures. This is more evident in case C when the pool is far from the walls. Results in case C show that flow is mainly driven by crosswise vortices, whereas for the case W, the flow is driven by longitudinal vortices. Depending on the distance for the sidewall, two mechanisms for the fire intermittency are identified: in case C the intermittency is mainly due to quenching and re-ignition, whereas in case W, it is essentially due to the interaction between flow and the sidewall.

© 2017 Elsevier Ltd Accumulation of combustible biomass residues on hot surfaces of processing machineries can pose fire hazards. In addition, the presence of nitrogen oxides (NO x ) from plant equipment alters the local conditions, aggravating the propensity for low temperature ignition risks. This study presents an experimental study on a relative effect of NO x on ignition temperature of morpholine, an important surrogate of biomass, to reveal the sensitising role of NO x in ignition of biomass fuels and to gain mechanistic insights into the chemical aspect of this behaviour in fire. The experiments employed a flow-through tubular reactor, operated at constant pressure and residence time of 1.01¿bar and 1.0¿s, respectively, and coupled with a Fourier-transform infrared spectroscope. For a representative fuel-rich condition (F=1.25), the concentration of NO x as small as 0.06% lowers the ignition temperature of morpholine by 150¿°C, i.e., from approximately 500¿°C to 350¿°C. The density functional theory (DFT) calculations performed with the CBS-QB3 composite method, that comprises a complete basis set, characterised the dynamics and energies of the elementary nitration reactions. We related the observed reduction in ignition temperature to the formation of unstable nitrite and nitrate adducts, as the result of addition of NO x species to morphyl and peroxyl radicals. Furthermore, the reaction of NO x with low-temperature hydroperoxyl radical leads to the formation of active OH species that also propagate the ignition process. The present findings quantify the ignition behaviour of biomass under NO x ¿doped atmospheres. The result is of great importance in practical applications, indicating that safe operation of wood-working plants requires avoiding trace concentration of NO x within the vicinity of biomass residues. This can be facilitated by proper (and separate) venting of engine exhausts.

© 2017 The Royal Society of Chemistry. Cr 1-x Al x N coatings, synthesised by an unbalanced magnetic sputtering system, showed improved microstructure and mechanical properties for ~14-21% Al content. In situ SR-XRD analysis indicated various crystalline phases in the coatings that included: CrN, AlN, a-Cr with small amounts of AlO 2 and Al 2 O 3 over the 25-700 °C range. Al doping improves resistance to crystal growth, stress release and oxidation resistance of the coatings. Al doping also enhances the coating hardness (H) from 29 to 42 GPa, elastic modulus (E) from 378 to 438 GPa and increased the resistance to deformation. First-principles and quasi-harmonic approximation (QHA) studies on bulk CrN and AlN were incorporated to predict the thermo-elastic properties of Cr 1-x Al x N thin film coatings in the temperature range of 0-1500 °C. The simulated results at T = 1500 °C give a predicted hardness of H = ~41.5 GPa for a ~21% Al doped Cr 1-x Al x N coating.

© 2016 Elsevier B.V. This contribution investigates primary steps governing the OH-initiated atmospheric oxidation of CS 2 . Our approach comprises high-level density functional theory calculation of energies and optimisation of molecular structures as well as RRKM-ME analysis for estimating pressure-dependent reaction rate constants. We find the overall reaction OH + CS 2 ¿ OCS + SH too slow to account for the formation of the reported experimental products. The initial reaction of OH with CS 2 proceeds to produce an S-adduct, SCS(OH). Species-formation history for the system OH + CS 2 indicates that, the S-adduct represents the most plausible product with a barrier-less addition process and a stability amounting to 48.5 kJ/mol, in reference to the separated reactants. This adduct then undergoes a bimolecular reaction with atmospheric O 2 yielding OCS and HOSO, rather than dissociating back into its separated reactants. We also find that further atmospheric oxidation of the C-adduct (if formed) yields two of the major experimental products namely OCS and SO 2 . The kinetic analysis provided in this study explains the atmospheric fate of reduced sulfur species, an important S-bearing group in the global cycle of sulfur.

© 2016 Elsevier B.V. Torrefaction is a thermal pre-treatment technology used to refine biomass, mainly for energy production purposes. However, there is currently a lack of information on the potential formation of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and dibenzofurans (PCDFs) in the torrefaction process. In this study, torrefaction was conducted using five different types of feedstock: stemwood, bark, wood from a discarded telephone pole, cassava stems and particle board. The feedstock as well as the torrefied biomass (chars) and the volatiles (non-condensable and condensable) generated during torrefaction were analyzed for PCDDs and PCDFs. PCDD concentrations in the torrefaction products were about 2¿5 fold of those in the feedstocks. Torrefaction of particle board resulted in extensive formation of PCDDs (7200¿ng¿kg -1 ) compared to the other four feedstocks (13¿27¿ng¿kg -1 ). Examination of the homologue profiles suggested that the observed PCDDs in the torrefaction products partly originated from new formation and partly physical transformation from volatilization and re-condensation of PCDDs present in the feedstock. Dechlorination of highly chlorinated compounds (HpCDD and OCDD) in the feedstock to form less chlorinated PCDDs was also observed. Compared to PCDDs, the net formation of PCDFs in the torrefaction process was low, except for the telephone pole sample, for which a dramatic increase (44-fold) of PCDFs was observed. PCDDs and PCDFs were mainly retained in the chars, accounting for 76¿96% and 39¿74% of the total concentration, respectively. It was also found that the highly chlorinated congeners tended to be retained in the chars, whereas the less chlorinated ones were predominantly volatilized into the gas phase.

© 2016 Elsevier B.V. In this article Cd-Zn sulphide thin films deposited onto soda lime glass substrates via chemical bath deposition (CBD) technique were investigated for photovoltaic applications. The synthesized films were investigated using X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and ultraviolet visible (UV¿vis) spectroscopic methodologies. A higher degree of crystallinity of the films was attained with the increase of film thicknesses. SEM micrographs exhibited a partial crystalline structure with a particulate appearance surrounded by the amorphous grain boundaries. The optical absorbance and absorption coefficient of the films were also enhanced significantly with the increase in film thicknesses. Optical band-gap analysis indicated a monotonic decrease in direct and indirect band-gaps with the increase of thicknesses of the films. The presence of direct and indirect transitional energies due to the exponential falling edges of the absorption curves may either be due to the lack of long-range order or to the existence of defects in the films. The declination of the optical absorption edges was also confirmed via Urbach energy and steepness parameters studies.

© 2016 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group. This contribution investigates structural and electronic properties as well as stability phase diagrams of surfaces of the cubic boron nitride (c-BN). Our calculated parameters for bulk c-BN agree reasonably well with both experimental and computed values available in the literature. Based on the energies of the three experimentally recognised phases of bulk boron, i.e. a-B 36 , ß-B 105 and ¿-B 28 , we estimate enthalpy of formation of c-BN to be -2.8¿eV. The c-BN(1 0 0) surface offers separate B and N terminations (denoted as c-BN(1 0 0)_B and c-BN(1 0 0)_N), whereas c-BN(1 1 1) and c-BN(1 1 0) are truncated with combinations of boron and nitrogen atoms (denoted as c-BN(1 1 1)_BN and c-BN(1 1 0)_BN). Optimised geometries of surfaces display interlayer displacements up to the three topmost layers. Downward displacement of surface boron atoms signifies a common geometric feature of all surfaces. Bulk c-BN and its most stable surface c-BN(1 0 0)_N possess no metallic character, with band gaps of 5.46 and 2.7¿eV, respectively. We find that, only c-BN(1 0 0)_B configuration exhibits a metallic character. c-BN(1 1 0)_BN and c-BN(1 1 1)_BN surfaces display corresponding band gaps of 2.5 and 3.9¿eV and, hence, afford no metallic property.

© 2017 Elsevier B.V. Sol-gel derived CuCo-oxide coatings as solar selective surfaces, synthesized onto aluminium substrates at various annealing temperatures, are analysed by correlating their structural, chemical bonding states, and surface morphological topographies. As the annealing progressed, all the coatings displayed a Cu 0.56 Co 2.44 O 4 (ICSD 78-2175) phase with preferential orientation along (400) reflection plane. Rietveld refinement of X-ray diffraction (XRD) data indicate that residual stress and microstrains developed around the coating surfaces are reduced resulting in mechanically stable thin films. Enhancement of the crystallite size and preferred orientation of the surface were confirmed via XRD, field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), and atomic force microscopy (AFM) analysis. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) analysis shows tetrahedral, octahedral and mixed states of Cu and Co ions with a stable atomic ratio of Co/Cu, and an increase of O and C contents but no metal-carbon bonding on the surface of materials. Optical reflectance investigations indicated that solar selectivity of the coatings increased from 3.81 to 24 as the annealing temperature reached up to 500 °C.

© The Royal Society of Chemistry 2017. Selective hydrogenation of acetylene (ethyne), present in hydrocarbon feed into ethylene (ethene) plays critical importance in processing operations. Unsupported molybdenum-nitride (Mo 2 N) catalysts mediate surface hydrogenation of ethyne with a profound selectivity, similar to that observed over noble metals. However, the underlying mechanisms governing the H 2 -C 2 H 2 -Mo 2 N interaction leading to partial, rather than complete, hydrogenation remain largely unclear. In this contribution, we have found that molecular hydrogen adopts several physisorbed states prior to its dissociation, mainly on 3-fold hollow fcc (H1) and 4-fold hollow fcc (H3) sites over the (111) and (100) terminations of ¿-Mo 2 N, respectively. Our results on the interaction of hydrogen with the ¿-Mo 2 N surface concur very well with the analogous experimental findings of the dissociation occurring preferentially on the vacant nitrogen sites, the mobility of surface-adsorbed hydrogen atoms from weak to strong adsorption sites (associated with pathways of low and high activation energies for dissociation of adsorbed H 2 on the catalyst surface) and the inhibition effect of pre-adsorbed oxygen on H 2 dissociation. The constructed reaction mechanism, the estimated reaction rate constants, and the micro-kinetic modelling explain the selective hydrogenation of ethyne into ethene, rather than ethane. We demonstrate that the occurrence of selective hydrogenation rests on two aspects: distinctive energy profiles of the hydrogenation steps in partial versus full hydrogenation routes and thermodynamic selectivity entailing higher surface stability of adsorbed C 2 H 2 in comparison to C 2 H 4 . Higher stabilities of the adsorbed open-shell C x H y species (C 2 H 3 *, C 2 H 5 *) on the (100) surface, in comparison to those on the (111) surface, indicate increased tendency for oligomerisation to occur on the (100) surface. Thermo-kinetic parameters reported herein provide molecular-level understanding of the unique and highly selective hydrogenation capacity of the ¿-Mo 2 N catalysts. Such knowledge is critically important in designing optimum operational conditions for practical processing operations.

© The Royal Society of Chemistry. The optical frequency response and changes to the dielectric and optical parameters due to annealing temperature variation (200-500 °C) of sol-gel derived CuCoO x thin film coatings were investigated. The optical constants such as absorption coefficient, band-gaps, Urbach energy, complex refractive index, complex dielectric constants, optical dispersion parameters, and energy loss functions were determined from reflectance data analysis recorded in the ultraviolet to near-infrared (190-2200 nm) range. The absorption coefficient and the broadening of absorption edge (steepness parameter), energy band-gaps, Urbach energy, loss tangent and energy loss functions decreased with the increase in annealing temperatures. The refractive index displayed normal dispersion behaviors at higher frequency with the maximum value at a temperature of 500 °C. First-principles simulations, density functional theory (DFT+U) as implemented in the Cambridge Serial Total Energy Package (CASTEP), based on a cluster structure of Cu 0.5 Co 2.5 O 4 system, optimized the crystalline structure and calculated the electronic structure of the framework. The calculated density of states (DOS) and associated absorption coefficient and dielectric constant results reasonably support the experimental findings.

© 2017 Elsevier Ltd This contribution investigates the low ignition temperature of carbon disulfide (CS 2 ) with tubular flow reactor experiments. It explains the extreme flammability of CS 2 with kinetic modelling entailing elementary reactions. The experiments are performed under dry conditions for an oxygen-fuel equivalence ratio of 0.7, 1.0 and 1.2 and for a temperature range of 700¿1200¿K. Compared with moist oxidation, the reaction forms CO as a final product, as we detected no CO 2 in the exhaust gases. A sensitivity analysis confirmed a significant influence of the CS 2 /O 2 and S/O 2 sub-mechanisms on the oxidation process. Subsequent theoretical calculations analysed the nature of the intersystem crossing responsible for lowering the activation energy for key elementary reactions and its influence on the low ignition temperature of CS 2 under dry condition. Our experimental and modelling results also account for the extreme flammability of other reduced sulfur species.

© 2017 American Chemical Society. This contribution investigates thermokinetic parameters of bimolecular gas-phase reactions involving the amine (NH 2 ) radical and a large number of saturated and unsaturated hydrocarbons. These reactions play an important role in combustion and pyrolysis of nitrogen-rich fuels, most notably biomass. Computations performed at the CBS-QB3 level and based on the conventional transition-state theory yield potential-energy surfaces and reaction rate constants, accounting for tunnelling effects and the presence of hindered rotors. In an analogy to other H abstraction systems, we demonstrate only a small influence of variational effects on the rate constants for selected reaction. The studied reactions cover the abstraction of hydrogen atoms by the NH 2 radical from the C-H bonds in C 1 -C 4 species, and four C 5 hydrocarbons of 2-methylbutane, 2-methyl-1-butene, 3-methyl-1-butene, 3-methyl-2-butene, and 3-methyl-1-butyne. For the abstraction of H from methane, in the temperature windows 300-500 and 1600-2000 K, the calculated reaction rate constants concur with the available experimental measurements, i.e., k calculated /k experimetal = 0.3-2.5 and 1.1-1.4, and the previous theoretical estimates. Abstraction of H atom from ethane attains the ratio of k calculated /k experimetal equal to 0.10-1.2 and 1.3-1.5 over the temperature windows of available experimental measurements, i.e., 300-900 K and 1500-2000 K, respectively. For the remaining alkanes (propane and n-butane), the average k experimental /k calculated ratio remains 2.6 and 1.3 over the temperature range of experimental data. Also, comparing the calculated standard enthalpy of reaction (¿ r H¿ 298 ) with the available experimental measurements for alkanes, we found the mean unsigned error of computations as 3.7 kJ mol -1 . This agreement provides an accuracy benchmark of our methodology, affording the estimation of the unreported kinetic parameters for H abstractions from alkenes and alkynes. On the basis of the Evans-Polanyi plots, calculated bond dissociation enthalpies (BDHs) correlate linearly with the standard enthalpy of activation (¿ ¿ H¿ 298 ), allowing estimation of the enthalpy barrier for reaction of NH 2 with other hydrocarbons in future work. Finally, we develop six sets of the generalized Arrhenius rate parameters for H abstractions from different C-H bond types. These parameters extend the application of the present results to any noncyclic hydrocarbon interacting with the NH 2 radical. (Figure Presented).

© 2017 Elsevier B.V. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastics constitute a large fraction of buildings, packaging and electronic devices, whereas, the annual emission electric arc furnace dust (EAFD) from steel manufacturing operations has recently peaked at nearly 6¿Mt. Co-pyrolysis of PVC with EAFD currently represents a focal abatement technology for both categories of pollutants. However, despite of several experimental investigations; the mechanisms underlying interaction between EAFD and PVC remain largely spe culative. Herein, we examine theoretically reactions of major products from thermal degradation of PVC with nanoclusters of iron (III) oxide, a-Fe 2 O 3 (hematite) as a representative model for the various metal oxides in EAFD. The facile nature for the H-Cl bond fission over hematite is in line with experimental findings, pointing out to formation of iron chlorides from pyrolysis of Fe 2 O 3 -PVC mixtures. Interaction of selected chlorinated C 1 -C 3 cuts with the hematite structure preferentially proceeds via a dissociative adsorption pathway. Results from this study shall be instrumental to understand, on a precise molecular basis, fixation of halogens on transitional metal oxides; a viable thermal recycling approach for polymeric materials laden with halogenated constituents.

© 2015 Elsevier B.V. The effect of methane on the conversion of HFC-134a (CF 3 CH 2 F) in a dielectric barrier discharge non-equilibrium plasma reactor was examined. Reactions were conducted in an argon bath gas and in the absence of oxygen and nitrogen. The products of the reaction include H 2 , HF, CHF 3 , CH 2 F 2 , C 2 H 6 , C 3 H 8 , C 2 H 3 F, CHF 2 CHF 2 , C 2 H 4 F 2 , C 3 H 7 F as well as a polymeric solid deposit. The polymeric materials are predominantly fluorine containing random copolymers, which can be categorised as fluoropolymers, constituted from various functional groups including CF 3 , CF 2 , CHF, CHF 2 , CH 2 F, CH 2 and CH 3 . While the presence of methane in the feed stream reduces the conversion level of CF 3 CH 2 F, it also modifies the polymer architecture. The addition of 1.25% methane with 12.5% CF 3 CH 2 F in an argon bath gas at 100cm 3 min -1 feed rate reduces the conversion of CF 3 CH 2 F from 74.5% to 46.8% and increases the formation of HF from 1500µmolh -1 to 2640µmolh -1 . The effect of methane addition on the electrical discharge and the reaction pathways are discussed.

The conversion levels, mass balance, reaction mechanism and polymer characterisation in relation to DCM reaction are presented in this paper. Reaction pathways describing the decomposition of DCM and subsequent formation of the major products are outlined. Speculation of the mechanism of formation of CHCl 3 and C 2 HCl 3 are supported by quantum chemical calculations. In addition, the effect of introducing methane in the reaction feed on the conversion level of DCM and the polymer structure is also examined in this paper.

© 2016 Elsevier B.V. A dielectric barrier discharge non-equilibrium plasma was employed to study the reaction of HCFC-22 (CHClF 2 ) with methane (in an argon bath gas) at atmospheric pressure and in the absence of oxygen and nitrogen. The reaction produced a fluorine-containing polymeric product, as well as gaseous species including H 2 , HF, HCl, CHF 3 , C 2 H 3 F, CH 3 Cl, CH 2 ClF, C 2 HClF 4 , CHCl 2 F, CH 2 Cl 2 and CCl 2 F 2 . While the main polymeric fraction is non-crosslinked, a small portion of the solid product is crosslinked. The polymers contain a wide range of functional gro ups including CH 3 , CH 2 , CHCl, CHF, CHClF, CHF 2 , CF 2 and CF 3 . The conversion level of CHClF 2 increased from 53% to 78%, with an increment in input energy density from 3 kJ L -1 to 13 kJ L -1 . A reaction mechanism is proposed explaining the formation of gaseous as well as polymeric products.

© 2016 American Chemical Society. This study resolves the interaction of sulfanyl radical (SH) with aliphatic (C 1 -C 4 ) hydrocarbons, using CBS-QB3 based calculations. We obtained the C-H dissociation enthalpies and located the weakest link in each hydrocarbon. Subsequent computations revealed that, H abstraction by SH from the weakest C-H sites in alkenes and alkynes, except for ethylene, appears noticeably exothermic. Furthermore, abstraction of H from propene, 1-butene, and iso-butene displays pronounced spontaneity (i.e., ¿ r G° < -20 kJ mol -1 between 300-1200 K) due to the relatively weak allylic hydrogen bond. However, an alkyl radical readily abstracts H atom from H 2 S, with H 2 S acting as a potent scavenger for alkyl radicals in combustion processes. That is, these reactions proceed in the opposite direction than those involving SH and alkene or alkyne species, exhibiting shallow barriers and strong spontaneity. Our findings demonstrate that the documented inhibition effect of hydrogen sulfide (H 2 S) on pyrolysis of alkanes does not apply to alkenes and alkynes. During interaction with hydrocarbons, the inhibitive effect of H 2 S and promoting interaction of SH radical depend on the reversibility of the H abstraction processes. For the three groups of hydrocarbon, Evans-Polanyi plots display linear correlations between the bond dissociation enthalpies of the abstracted hydrogens and the relevant activation energies. In the case of methane, we demonstrated that the reactivity of SH radicals toward abstracting H atoms exceeds that of HO 2 but falls below those of OH and NH 2 radicals. (Figure Presented).

© the Owner Societies 2016. A novel Pd supported on TS-1 combustion catalyst was synthesized and tested in methane combustion under very lean and under highly humid conditions ( < 1%). A notable increase in hydrothermal stability was observed over 1900 h time-on-stream experiments, where an almost constant, steady state activity obtaining 90% methane conversion was achieved below 500 °C. Surface oxygen mobility and coverage plays a major role in the activity and stability of the lean methane combustion in the presence of large excess of water vapour. We identified water adsorption and in turn the hydrophobicity of the catalyst support as the major factor influencing the long term stability of combustion catalysts. While Pd/Al 2 O 3 catalyst shows a higher turn-over frequency than that of Pd/TS-1 catalyst, the situation reversed after ca. 1900 h on stream. Two linear regions, with different activation energies in the Arrhenius plot for the equilibrium Pd/TS-1 catalys t, were observed. The conclusions were supported by catalyst characterization using H 2 -chemisorption, TPD, XPS analyses as well as N 2 -adsorption-desorption, XRD, SEM, TEM. The hydrophobicity and competitive adsorption of water with oxygen is suggested to influence oxygen surface coverage and in turn the apparent activation energy for the oxidation reaction.

© 2016 Elsevier B.V. In this contribution, the development of a process for the synthesis of potentially highly valuable polymeric products from the reaction of waste glycerol with ammonia is reported for the first time. The polymers were the result of a single step, continuous gas phase process, catalysed by an alumina-supported iron catalyst, operating under relatively mild reaction conditions. The solid product was characterised using 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopy, FTIR spectroscopy, qualitative chemical tests and elemental analysis. Characterisation revealed building blocks with unsaturated, amido and ester functionalities shaping a mixture of polymers. Nitrogen atoms were present in the main chain of the resultant polymers. NMR analyses of the polymer denotes the formation of structural defects such as unsaturation and branching; whilst the partial solubility of the polymer in solvents such as CDCl 3 and THF is indicative of the formation of cross-linked structures. Insights into the mechanism of formation of these functional groups were based on the liquid and gas phase product distribution. Polymers with chain structures similar to those synthesised in this work are currently manufactured from fossil fuels and are widely used in biomedical applications not only because of their architecture but also due to their response to changes in pH and temperature.

© 2016 American Chemical Society. This contribution presents a computational account of strong and exothermic interaction of atomic and molecular oxygen with the a(001)B12 surface of boron. Physisorbed oxygen interacts weakly with the surface, but the dissociative chemisorption entails considerable exothermicity in the range of 2.47-3.45 eV, depending on the adsorbed sites of the two oxygen atoms. Nonetheless, rupture of dioxygen on the surface involves a sizable intrinsic reaction barrier of 3.40 eV (at 0 K). Such high amount of energy clearly explains the chemical inertness (i.e., the lack of oxidation) of boron at room temperature. However, elevated temperature encountered in real applications of boron, such as cutting machinery, overcomes the high-energy barrier for the dissociative adsorption of molecular oxygen (3.40 eV). A stability T-P phase diagram reveals the spontaneous nature of the substitutional O/a(001)B12 adsorption modes that lead to the formation of diboron trioxide (B 2 O 3 ) at temperatures and pressure pertinent to practical applications. This finding conclusively collaborates the experimental observation of the formation of the B 2 O 3 phase from adsorption of oxygen on boron. Finally, charge analysis provides an atomic-scale probe for the predicted stability ordering of the considered O/a(001)B12 configurations.

© 2015 The Combustion Institute. Ethylamine (EA) often serves as a surrogate species to represent aliphatic amines that occur in biofuels. This contribution reports, for the first time, the thermochemical and kinetic parameters for bimolecular reactions of EA with three prominent radicals that form in the initial stages of biomass decomposition; namely, H, CH 3 and NH 2 . Abstraction of a methylene H atom from the EA molecule largely dominates H loss from the two other sites (i.e., methyl and amine hydrogens) for the three considered radicals. We demonstrate that, differences in bond dissociation enthalpies of methylene C-H bonds among EA, ethanol and propane reflect their corresponding HOMO/LUMO energy gaps. At low and intermediate temperatures, the rate of H abstraction from the methylene site in EA exceeds the corresponding values for propane and ethanol. As the temperature rises, matching entropic factors induce comparable rate constants for the three molecules.

© 2016 The Combustion Institute Large-eddy simulation with transported probability density function (t-PDF) method for modelling pool fires is presented. The PDF method that is used here is based on the Eulerian stochastic fields method (SF), and is accelerated with chemistry coordinate mapping (CCM) technique. SF-CCM for large-eddy simulation is formulated and applied to simulate methanol pool fires with various pool sizes for the first time. The model includes finite rate chemistry effects with detailed chemistry of the methanol combustion. The simulation results agree well with experiments in terms of the averaged flame height and the maximum ceiling temperature. More important is the capability of the current approach in reproducing the dynamic characteristics of the fire plume. Especially, the intermittent behaviour of pool fires and its response to the effects of the pool size are predicted, accurately. The key factor to success is the capability of the method in handling multiple modes of combustion in both premixed and non-premixed mixtures. It is shown that a pool fire involves the local and global extinction which is mainly due to the large entrainment of the fresh and cold ambient air to the base of fire plume. It is shown that the quenching and re-ignition are key processes in the understanding the dynamic behaviour of pool fires.

Standard entropies and heat capacities comprise correction terms due to the treatment of O-H bonds as hindered rotors. Values of the bond dissociation enthalpies (BDHs) of O-H bonds, calculated for a selected series of bromochlorophenols, vary slightly with the change in the pattern and degree of halogenation of the phenyl ring. A thermodynamic cycle facilitated the estimation of pK a values, based on the calculated solvation and gas-phase deprotonation energies. We estimated the solvation energies of 19 out of 64 BCPs and their respective anions based on the integral equation formalism polarizable continuum model using optimized structures in the aqueous phase. Values of pK a decrease significantly from around 9 for monohalogenated to around 3 for pentahalogenated phenols.

© 2015 Elsevier B.V. This contribution investigates the phase composition of CrN and CrAlN coatings by in-situ high temperature synchrotron radiation (SR-XRD), with the coatings deposited on steel substrate by closed field unbalance magnetron sputtering. Rietveld refinement on the SR-XRD spectra indicated CrN as the major phase, over the temperature range of 25 °C - 700 °C, for both coatings . At the high temperature of 700 °C, a Cr 2 N phase was observed in the CrN coating while the CrAlN coating also had a Cr phase. Williamson-Hall plots, from the refined data, afforded estimating variations of the strain and crystallite size of the major phase, up to 700 °C. The crystallite size (10 nm) for the CrAlN coating, at 25 °C, agrees very well with previous GI-XRD and TEM results obtained at room temperature Li et al. (2012).

© 2015 Elsevier Ltd. Photodecomposition of bromophenols (BPs) represents a potent channel of debromination and elimination of these species in the environment. From this perspective, the present contribution reports geometrical parameters, electronic absorption spectra and excited states of the complete series of BPs in their ground state (S 0 ), as well as their first singlet exited state (S 1 ). We calculate excitation energies for S 0 ¿ S 1 transition within the framework of the time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT). We estimate and discuss charges on bromine atoms and HOMO-LUMO energy gaps (E H-L ) as molecular descriptors for the photoreactivity of BPs and photo-induced debromination mechanism of BPs. Spectral patterns reveal that, as the degree of bromination increases, peaks of absorption spectra red-shift toward wavelengths near 300 nm, for the pentabrominated phenol. Based on the analysis of optimised geometries and Hirshfeld's atomic charges, photodebromination of BPs commences via the loss of an ortho Br atom. The excitation energies decrease linearly with increasing number of bromine atoms. This indicates that, higher brominated congeners of BPs photodecompose more readily than lower brominated congeners.

© 2015 Published by Elsevier B.V. Chromium nitride (CrN)-based materials display broad applications as protective coatings for automotive, power generation and aerospace industries, in which surfaces are often subjected to wea r and corrosion. By using an appropriate choice of dopant, one can further increase the mechanical hardness, corrosion and oxidation resistance of these coatings. In order to identify the effect of dopants on the structural evolution and surface electronic properties of CrN coatings, Cr 1-z (Al/Si) z N coatings were prepared by magnetron sputtering and then characterized via X-ray diffraction (XRD) and soft X-ray synchrotron radiation Near-edge X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (NEXAFS) studies around N K-edge. Higher degree of crystallinity of the coatings were identified through XRD studies. The bonding structure, of the doped CrN coating, was analyzed by Near-edge X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (NEXAFS) measurements performed around the N K-edge (390-450 eV) in the Auger electron yield (AEY) and total fluorescence yield (TFY) modes. NEXAFS analysis revealed Cr3d(Al3p/Si3p)N2p hybridizations in Cr 1-z (Al/Si) z N compositions and complex structure splitting via spin-orbit interaction of the Cr3d levels.

© 2016 American Chemical Society. Plastics containing brominated flame retardants (BFRs) constitute the major fraction of nonmetallic content in e-waste. Co-pyrolysis of BFRs with hematite (Fe 2 O 3 ) represents a viable option for the thermal recycling of BFRs. Consensus of experimental findings confirms the excellent bromine fixation ability of Fe 2 O 3 and the subsequent formation of iron bromides. This contribution provides a comprehensive mechanistic account of the primary reactions between a cluster model of Fe 2 O 3 and major bromine-bearing products from the decomposition of tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBA), the most commonly deployed BFR. We estimate the thermo-kinetic parameters for interactions of Fe 2 O 3 with HBr, brominated alkanes and alkenes, bromobenzene, and bromophenol. Dissociative addition of HBr at a Fe-O bond proceeds through a trivial barrier of 8.2 kcal/mol with fitted parameters in the Arrhenius equation of k(T) = 7.96 × 10 11 -exp(-6400/RT) s -1 . The facile and irreversible nature for HBr addition to Fe 2 O 3 accords with the experimentally reported 90% reduction in HBr emission when Fe 2 O 3 interacts with TBBA pyrolysates. A detailed kinetic analysis indicates that, transformation of Fe 2 O 3 into iron bromides and oxybromides occurs via successive addition of HBr to Fe(Br)-O(H) entities. Elimination of a water molecule proceeds through an intramolecular H transfer. A direct elimination one-step mechanism operates in the dehydrohalogenation of bromoethane into ethene over Fe 2 O 3 . Dissociative decomposition and direct elimination channels assume comparable reaction rates in formation of acetylene from vinyl bromide. Results from this study provide an atomic-based insight into a promising thermal recycling route of e-waste.

© 2016 American Chemical Society. This contribution reports the results of comprehensive quantum-mechanical calculations of low-temperature oxidation (i.e., below the softening point) of polyethylene (PE) film in a corrosive NO x environment, by mapping out the potential energy surface for a large set of reactions, developing thermokinetic parameters for each elementary reaction and discussing in detail the most energetically favorable paths. Remarkably, addition of nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO 2 ) results in formation of C-nitroso and nitro species, respectively, and successively leads to internal tautomerisation or concerted elimination of nitroxyl (HNO) and nitrous acid (HNO 2 ). We demonstrate that, the presence of molecular oxygen sustains the formation of O-nitroso compounds, organic nitrites and nitrates. Reaction rate parameters have been established for all considered reactions over the temperature range of 300 to 800 K. The results presented herein provide new insights into the solid-state polymer-gas reactivity of PE in NO x atmosphere pertinent to thermal recycling of materials laden with PE and to cocombustion of PE with a nitrogen-rich fuel such as biomass. The results will find application to systems that involve oxidative decomposition of germane crystalline polyolefins/paraffins and pure carbon-hydrogen-type polymers induced by aggressive gases such as NO and NO 2 .

© 2016 American Chemical Society. Cubic molybdenum nitride (¿-Mo 2 N) exhibits Pt-like catalytic behavior in many chemical applications, most notably as a potent catalyst for conversion of harmful NO x gases into N 2 . Guided by experimental profiles from adsorption of 15 NO on ¿-Mo 2 14 N, we map out plausible mechanisms for the formation of the three isotopologues of dinitrogen ( 14 N 2 , 15 N 2 , and 14 N 15 N) in addition to 14 N 15 NO. By deploying cluster models for the ¿-Mo 2 N(100) and ¿-Mo 2 N(111) surfaces, we demonstrate facile dissociative adsorption of NO on ¿-Mo 2 N surfaces. Surfaces of ¿-Mo 2 N clearly activate adsorbed 15 NO molecules, as evidenced by high binding energies and the noticeable elongation of the N-O bonds. 15 NO molecule dissociates through modest reaction barriers of 24.1 and 28.1 kcal/mol over ¿-Mo 2 N(100) and ¿-Mo 2 N(111) clusters; respectively. Dissociative adsorption of a second 15 NO molecule produces the experimentally observed Mo 2 O x N y phase. Over the 100 surface, subsequent uptake of 15 NO continues to occur until the dissociated O and N atoms occupy all 4-fold hollow and top sites. We find that, the direct desorption of 15 N 2 from the Mo 2 O x N y -like phases phase requires a sizable energy barrier to precede. Considering a preoxygen surface covered cluster reduces this energy barrier only marginally. Desorption of 15 N 2 molecules takes place upon combination of two adjacent N atoms from top sites via a low-energy multistep Langmuir-Hinshelwood mechanism. Dissociative adsorption of gaseous 15 NO molecules at surface Mo-N bonds weakens the Mo-N bonds and leads to formation of 14 N 15 N molecules (where 14 N denotes a nitrogen atom originated from surfaces of ¿-Mo 2 N crystals). Liberation of 14 N 2 molecules occurs via surface diffusion of two surface N atoms on the (111) N-terminated surface. Formation of 14 N 15 NO proceeds via direct abstraction of a surface 14 N atom by a gaseous 15 NO adduct.

© 2016 The Royal Society of Chemistry. Transition metal nitride Ti x M 1-x-y N y (M = Al or AlSi) based thin films are evaluated as solar selective surfaces by correlating their spectral selective features with their crystal structure and chemical bonding state including mechanical strength. Ti 0.5 N 0.5 , Ti 0.25 Al 0.25 N 0.5 , and Ti 0.25 Al 0.2 Si 0.05 N 0.5 films were synthesized on AISI M2 steel substrates via closed field unbalanced magnetron sputtering technology. These were investigated using XRD, SEM, XPS, UV-Vis, FTIR and nanoindentation techniques. Analysis of the optical properties showed the solar absorptance, in the visible range, of the Ti x M 1-x-y N y films improved significantly from 51% to 81% with AlSi-doping and an increase of solar absorptance of up to 66% was recorded from films doped with Al. Moreover, the Al doping can reduce the thermal emittance in the infrared range from 6.06% to 5.11%, whereas doping with AlSi reduces the emittance to ca. 3.58%. The highest solar selectivity of 22.63 was achieved with TiAlSiN films. Mechanical studies showed enhanced hardness by ~32%; enhanced yield strength by ~16% and enhanced plastic deformation by ~110% of Al and AlSi doped TiN matrix.

We combine combustion experiments and density functional theory (DFT) calculations to investigate the formation of chlorobenzenes from oxidative thermal decomposition of 1,3-dichloropropene. Mono- to hexa-chlorobenzenes are observed between 800 and 1150. K, and the extent of chlorination was proportional to the combustion temperature. Higher chlorinated congeners of chlorobenzene (tetra-, penta-, hexa-chlorobenzene) are only observed in trace amounts between 950 and 1050. K. DFT calculations indicate that cyclisation of chlorinated hexatrienes proceeds via open-shell radical pathways. These species represent key components in the formation mechanism of chlorinated polyaromatic hydrocarbons. Results presented herein should provide better understanding of the evolution of soot from combustion/pyrolysis of short chlorinated alkenes.

© 2015 The Institution of Chemical Engineers. An increased interest in using hydrocarbons in solid oxide fuel cells for the production of power has led to research into operation on synthesis (syn) gas, a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide. Hydrocarbons are typically reformed, either internally or in an external reformer prior to the fuel cell, producing syngas with various H < inf > 2 < /inf > :CO ratios depending on the hydrocarbon used. This paper examines the effect of varying the H < inf > 2 < /inf > :CO ratio with respect to C < inf > 1 < /inf > to C < inf > 4 < /inf > steam reforming reactions and additionally a mixture containing a higher ratio of carbon monoxide. It was found that there was no significant relationship between cell performance and H < inf > 2 < /inf > :CO ratio when a high feed rate was employed. For low flow rates, however, the high carbon monoxide concentration resulted in a significant decrease in cell performance. It was determined that this was caused by reversible carbon deposition as opposed to a decrease in carbon monoxide reactivity.

© 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. Nano-sized Co 3 O 4 , Fe 2 O 3 , Au/Co 3 O 4 and Au/Fe 2 O 3 catalysts were prepared and evaluated for catalytic combustion of lean methane-air mixtures. Characteristics and catalytic activities under dry and wet feed conditions were investigated at gas hourly space velocities up to 100 000 h -1 mimicking the typical flow and conversion requirements of a catalytic system designed to treat a ventilation air methane stream. In order to gain a better understanding of the interaction between H 2 O and the catalyst surface, temperature-programmed desorption of water over fresh and used samples were studied, and supported by other catalyst characterization techniques such as N 2 -adsorption desorption, XRD, TEM, SEM and XPS analyses. The activity measurements of the catalysts studied identify Co 3 O 4 as the most active material. Co-precipitating gold particles with cobalt oxide or iron oxide do not enhance the activity of the catalyst, which is most likely due to blocking the active site of support by the gold particle. The presence of strong hydroxyl bonds on the catalyst surface is substantiated by TPD and XPS analyses, and is suggested to be responsible for the rapid deactivation of Fe 2 O 3 and Au/Fe 2 O 3 catalysts.

This journal is © the Owner Societies 2015. Density functional theory together with ab initio atomistic thermodynamics has been utilized to study the structures and stabilities of the low index CuCl surfaces. It is shown that the Cl-terminated structures are more stable than the Cu-terminated configurations, and that the defective CuCl(110)-Cu structure is more stable than the stoichiometric CuCl(110) surface. The equilibrium shape of a cuprous chloride nanostructure terminated by low-index CuCl surfaces has also been predicted using a Wulff construction. It was found that the (110) facets dominate at low chlorine concentration. As the chlorine concentration is increased, however, the contributions of the (100) and (111) facets to the Wulff construction also increase giving the crystal a semi-prism shape. At high chlorine concentration, and close to the rich limit, the (111) facets were found to be the only contributors to the Wulff construction, resulting in prismatic nanocrystals.

© 2004 The Combustion Institute. Published by Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. The emissions of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxin and polychlorinated dibenzofuran (PCDD and PCDF) were assessed for wood impregnated with ammoniacal copper quaternary (ACQ) and copper boron azole (CBA). The two preservatives constitute the replacements for chromated copper arsenate (CCA) treatment, which is being phased out as a consequence of health concerns relating to arsenic and chromium compounds. The gaseous emission of PCDD/F from oxidative pyrolysis of CBA contained considerable amounts of PCDD/F of up to 7500 pg TE/Nm3. A large increase was also observed for the gaseous emission from smoldering of CBA following the oxidative pyrolysis, where 570 pg TE/Nm3 was detected. The ash residues of CBA remaining after the CBA emissions after oxidative pyrolysis and ensuing smoldering also showed significant propensity to yield PCDD and PCDF, resulting in 3200 ng TE/kg ash. In contrast, flaming combustion of the two treated timbers did not result in the emission of significant quantities of PCDD/F. The concentrations were quantified as 3.5 and 5.2 pg TE/Nm3 for the ACQ and CBA timber samples, and indicate no reasonable increase over that resulting from similar combustion of untreated Pinus radiata, 3.7 pg TE/Nm3. The smoldering of ACQ and CBA ash residues after flaming combustion generated PCDD/F, with the ashes containing 5.0 and 140 ng TE/kg ash, respectively. The increase in PCDD/F formation is discussed with respect to de novo formation in the ash and the influence Eof the wood preservatives.

© 2014 The Combustion Institute. Abstraction of an H atom from the propyl side chain by hydroperoxyl radicals (HO 2 ) constitutes a central reaction in the low-temperature oxidation of n-propylbenzene (nPB). Herein, we calculate reaction rate constants for H abstraction from primary, secondary and benzylic sites in nPB. Rate of abstraction of a benzylic H atom dominates that of a secondary H atom with negligible abstraction of the primary H atom at T=600K. We present the reaction enthalpies for 1-phenyl-1-propyl (R1), 1-phenyl-2-propyl (R2) and 1-phenyl-3-propyl (R3) radicals, and compare the computed reaction rate constants and bond dissociation enthalpies with analogous scarce literature values. Addition of HO 2 radicals to radical sites in R1, R2 and R3 proceeds in a highly exothermic process and results in the formation of HO 2 -phenylpropyl adducts. Mapped potential energy surfaces illustrate all plausible exit channels of the three HO 2 -phenylpropyl adducts. Master equation calculations for the three phenylpropyl+HO 2 reactions indicate that direct O-OH bond fission and water elimination control the fate of the adducts leading to the formation of ketonic-type structures. Results from this study should be useful to update kinetic models for the low-temperature oxidation of alkylbenzenes in general.

© 2015 The Combustion Institute. Auto-oxidation of polyethylene (PE) is of a common occurrence and could be triggered by several physical and chemical factors. In this study, for the first time, we report a comprehensive theoretical account on the initial oxidation of crystalline PE at low temperatures prior to its melting. We map out potential energy surfaces for large number of reactions, most notably, initial abstraction by O < inf > 2 < /inf > molecules, formation of peroxy- and hydroperoxyl adducts, unimolecular eliminations of HO < inf > 2 < /inf > and H < inf > 2 < /inf > O as well as CC bond fissions. Rate constants have been estimated for all considered reactions over the temperature range of 300-800K. We have discussed noticeable similarities between the oxidation of PE and that of gas-phase alkanes. Results presented herein provide new insights into the solid-state oxidation of PE and germane crystalline polyolefins/paraffins and pure carbon-hydrogen-type polymers.

© 2015 American Chemical Society. This contribution presents pathways for the formation of the three nitrogenated dioxin-like species, carbazole, phenoxazine, and phenazine via unimolecular rearrangements of diphenylamine (DPA) and its nitro substituents (NDPA). The latter represent major structural entities appearing in formulations of explosives and propellants. Intramolecular H transfer from the amine group to one of the two O atoms in the nitro group denotes the most accessible route in the unimolecular decomposition of NDPA. Further unimolecular rearrangements afford phenazine and carbazole. A loss of an ortho substituent from DPA, followed by addition of an oxygen molecule, prompts the formation of carbazole and phenoxazine in a facile mechanism. The consistency between trends in Fukui-based electrophilic indices and the experimental profiles of chlorinated carbazole, phenoxazine, and phenazine suggests the formation of these species by electrophilic substitution.

© 2014 Elsevier Ltd. Decades after phasing out their production and use, especially in the formulations of brominated flame retardants (BFRs), polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs) still pose serious environmental and health problems. The oxidation of PBB has been hypothesised as a pathway for the formation of the notorious polybrominated dibenzofurans (PBDFs) and their dispersion in the environment. However, the exact reaction corridor remains misunderstood, with the existing mechanisms predicting the reaction to proceed via a high energy process that involves the breakage of C-C linkage (~118.0kcalmol -1 ) and the subsequent formation of bromophenols molecules, where the latter are supposed to act as precursors for the formation of PBDFs (~40.0-60.0kcalmol -1 ). Herein, we show that PBBs produce PBDFs in a facile mechanism through a series of highly exothermic reactions (i.e., overall barriers reside 8.2-10.0kcalmol -1 below the entrance channel). Whilst the fate of the ROO-type intermediates in oxidation of all aromatics is to emit CO or CO 2 , PBDFs constitute the dominant products from the oxidation of PBBs. Initially formed R-OO adduct evolves in a very exoergic mechanism to yield PBDFs. In view of the facile oxidative transformation of PBBs into PBDFs, we conclude that, it is unsafe to dispose BFRs in oxidation processes, as this practice generates high yields of toxic PBDFs.

© 2015 Elsevier Ltd. This contribution investigates mechanistic and kinetic parameters pertinent to formation of mixed dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PXDD/Fs) from the condensation reactions involving 2-chlorophenoxy (2-CPxy) and 2-bromophenoxy (2-BPxy) radicals. Keto-ether structures act as direct intermediates for the formation of DD, 1-MCDD, 1-MBDD, 1-B,6-CDD and 1-B,9-CDD molecules. Likewise, diketo adducts initiate the formation of 4-MCDF, 4-MBDF and 4-B,6-CDF compounds through interconversion and rearrangement reactions. As formation mechanisms of halogenated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans from precursors of brominated and chlorinated phenols are insensitive to substitution at meta and para sites, our mechanistic and kinetic analysis of reactions involving 2-BPxy and 2-CPxy should also apply to higher halogenated phenoxy radicals.

© the Owner Societies 2015. We present, in this study, mechanistic and kinetic accounts of the formation of dibenzofuran (DF), dibenzo-p-dioxin (DD) and their hydroxylated derivatives (OHs-DF/OHs-DD) from the catechol (CT) molecule, as a model compound for phenolic constituents in biomass. Self-condensation of two CT molecules produces predominantly a DD molecule via open- and closed-shell corridors. Coupling modes involving the o-semiquinone radical and the CT molecule (o-SQ/CT) generate two direct structural blocks for the formation of OHs-DF/OHs-DD structures, ether-type intermediates and di-keto moieties. The calculated reaction rate constants indicate that the fate of ether-type intermediates is to make hydroxylated diphenyl ethers rather than to undergo cyclisation reactions leading to the formation of preDF structures. Unimolecular loss of a H or OH moiety from a pivotal carbon in these hydroxylated diphenyl ethers then produces hydroxylated and non-hydroxylated DD molecules. Formation of OHs-DF initiated by o(C)-o(C) cross-linkages involving o-SQ/o-SQ and o-SQ/CT reactions incurs very similar reaction and activation enthalpies encountered in the formation of chlorinated DFs from chlorophenols.

© the Owner Societies 2015. This study presents a comprehensive periodic slab DFT investigation into structures, electronic properties and thermodynamic stability of all plausible terminations of CuBr and CuBr 2 surfaces. We first estimate lattice constants, formation and cohesive energies for the two bulk copper bromides before proceeding to analyse geometrical and electronic features of CuBr and CuBr 2 configurations. Surface geometries exhibit, to a large extent, corresponding bulk structures. Nevertheless, certain CuBr 2 surfaces experience a downward displacement of the topmost Cu-containing layers. We plot total and projected density of states for bulk and surface geometries of these two copper bromides and calculate their associated Bader's electronic charges. Electronic structure analysis for the bulk and surfaces of these two copper bromides show that CuBr bulk and its most stable surface (CuBr(001)-Br) do not exhibit any metallic character, whereas CuBr 2 bulk and its most stable surface (CuBr 2 (001)-Br) both exhibit metallic characters. The formalism of the ab initio atomistic thermodynamics affords the construction of energy phase diagrams. We predict that the CuBr(001) surface, truncated with Br atoms, is the most stable structure among the considered CuBr slabs at all physically meaningful ranges of the chemical potential of bromine. This surface resembles a c(2 × 2)-bromine sheet that was characterised experimentally from initial interaction of Br 2 with a Cu(100) surface. We find that surfaces terminated with the electronegative bromine atoms, if accompanied by significant relaxation, tend to be more stable. Calculated surface energies predict the shapes of CuBr and CuBr 2 nanoparticles as the chemical potential of bromine changes. This journal is

© 2014 IEEE. Nonequilibrium plasma polymerization of hydrofluorocarbon HFC-134a CF 3 CH 2 F in argon bath gas has been studied in a dielectric barrier discharge reactor at atmospheric pressure and in the absence of oxygen and nitrogen. The reaction resulted in the formation of a polymeric solid fraction and the noncrosslinked properties of this material assisted in its characterization by solution state 13C} and 19F nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Gel permeation chromatography revealed that the polymers include low (number average molecular weight, M n values between 900 and 3000g~mol -1 and high (M n approximately 60000 g~mol -1 molecular weight fractions. A detailed polymerization mechanism is proposed, based on the published literature and the findings of the current investigation.

Typically, mineral carbonation comprises aqueous phase reactions involving the dissolution of naturally occurring magnesium and calcium silicate rocks, such as olivine, serpentinites and wollastonite, followed by the precipitation of magnesium and calcium carbonate minerals. In this report, we evaluated the effect of formic, acetic and DL-lactic acids on the calcium-leaching process from wollastonite between 22 C and 80 C and at atmospheric pressure. OLI Analyzer Studio 3.0 predicted equilibrium conversions of calcium and its speciation in the aqueous phase. Additionally, we measured dissolution rates, for a constant pH system, as a function of temperature for the three organic acids. All experiments involved the reaction of 17 ± 1 µm (volume mean diameter) ground rock samples with the acids in a stirred batch reactor equipped with in situ pH measurements. Inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) analysed the concentration of calcium ions in the leaching medium while scanning electron microscopy/energy dispersive spectroscopy (SEM/EDS) examined the morphology and surface chemical composition of the residual solid phase from dissolution experiments. We estimated the maximum dissolution rates of wollastonite in the limit of low but achievable pH and in the absence of diffusion limitation in pores and cracks of the SiO 2 skin. At 80 C, these rates correspond to 26(±7) × 10 -5 , 14(±3) × 10 -5 and 17(±4) × 10 -5 mol m -2 s -1 for formic, acetic and DL-lactic acids, respectively. The apparent activation energies amount to 11 ± 3, 47 ± 13 and 52 ± 14 kJ mol -1 for dissolution in formic, acetic and DL-lactic acids, respectively. These values indicate the initial diffusion limitation in the film around wollastonite particles for formic acid, and kinetic limitation for acetic and DL-lactic acids. The rates of dissolution rapidly decline for acetic and DL-lactic acids, but remain high for formic acid. The findings are altogether indicative of high performance of formic acid for extraction of Ca 2+ for storing CO 2 . Further experiments are needed to assess the recycling of formic acid to determine its overall suitability as a Ca 2+ carrier for the weak acid process. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

In this paper we focus on the development of a methodology for treatment of carbon tetrachloride utilising a non-equilibrium plasma operating at atmospheric pressure, which is not singularly aimed at destroying carbon tetrachloride but rather at converting it to a non-hazardous, potentially valuable commodity. This method encompasses the reaction of carbon tetrachloride and methane, with argon as a carrier gas, in a quartz dielectric barrier discharge reactor. The reaction is performed under non-oxidative conditions. Possible pathways for formation of major products based on experimental results and supported by quantum chemical calculations are outlined in the paper. We elucidate important parameters such as carbon tetrachloride conversion, product distribution, mass balance and characterise the chlorinated polymer formed in the process. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

This contribution assesses the dissolution behaviour of serpentinite specimens, featuring distinct stages of serpentinisation, by treating the specimens with aqueous solutions of formic acid. We have observed a marked improvement in the extraction of magnesium when the samples were finely ground and thermally conditioned before treatment with formic acid. An extraction of 42% for -25 µm particles activated at 700 °C (29% residual OH) could be obtained from the forsterite-lizardite bearing specimen whereas 66% of magnesium was leached out of the fully serpentinised antigorite mineral, which was crushed to a particle size of -53 µm and baked at 720 °C (36% residual OH). Combined results derived from FTIR and XRD indicate that heat activation between 500 and 720 °C results in a reorganisation of lizardite and antigorite to amorphised material, forsterite and silica. Unreactive enstatite forms from the amorphised material and silica once the heating temperature exceeds 800 °C. Semi-quantitative XRD analysis yields an estimate of the crystalline and non-crystalline (forsterite) fractions of the activated material, permitting approximation of relative rates of dissolution of amorphous and forsterite phases. Although FTIR provides important information on forsterite and silica formation, it cannot detect the amorphous material. Forsterite and amorphous phases alike dissolve in the weak acid but the formation of skins of the amorphous silica limits the overall magnesium yield on a laboratory time scale. The material that constitutes the skins originates from two sources: (i) silica formed in forsterisation of serpentine minerals undergoing heat treatment, and (ii) silica produced during extraction of Mg by a weak acid from amorphous and forsterite phases. Heat activation also leads to the formation of andradite and modified chlorite minerals that exhibit less solubility than forsterite and amorphous phases in weakly acidic medium.© 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

This contribution reports the results of batch and semibatch experiments involving bubbling of nitrogen in aqueous solutions of magnesium bicarbonate, with and without the addition of either carbonic anhydrase (CA) or Scenedesmus alga to the solution. Precipitation of nesquehonite occurred during both an accelerated degassing of CO 2 induced by sparging small nitrogen bubbles (representative diameter of 20 µm), and during slow degassing engendered by introducing large nitrogen bubbles (representative diameter of 5 mm). The response of the system during low rates of degassing closely approached quasi-thermodynamic predictions, which permitted an estimation of the level of supersaturation of nesquehonite, prior to the onset of precipitation. Small bubbles and CA significantly increased rates of degassing and indirectly the production of nesquehonite, as the rate of degassing can limit the precipitation process. The response of the system during rapid rates of degassing, prior to precipitation, was not entirely consistent with quasi-thermodynamic predictions. During precipitation, higher rates of degassing produced similar alkalisation and precipitation trends to that observed for lower rates of degassing. Our results agree with the formation of travertine deposits in nature, where the degassing of solutions enriched with inorganic carbon, and enhanced alkalisation by microorganisms, have been shown to influence carbonate formation. The results demonstrate a catalytic effect of CA on the rate limiting carbonate reactions, increasing CO 2 exchange between nitrogen and water, and indirectly accelerating the precipitation of carbonates for a system controlled by rate of degassing. The results of this study have applications to large-scale storage of CO 2 by mineralisation. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Conversion of glycerol to allyl alcohol was carried out over an iron on alumina catalyst. With the aim of enhancing selectivity towards the desired product and to reduce acrolein formation (a detrimental impurity in the subsequent epoxidation of allyl alcohol) the supported iron catalyst was modified using alkali metals. It was found that lithium, sodium, potassium, rubidium and caesium deposition on the catalyst surface increased allyl alcohol yield and reduced the rate of catalyst deactivation. Coincidently, acrolein selectivity decreased by up to 75% following treatment with the alkali salt.Changes in the product distribution were determined to be associated with altering the acid/base properties of the catalyst, as confirmed by isopropanol dehydration/dehydrogenation, ammonia and carbon dioxide temperature programmed desorption. The treatment was also found to influence the physical properties of the catalyst surface. A correlation between acid to basic site concentration and allyl alcohol selectivity was established. A reduction in the former value results in an enhancement in the rate of allyl alcohol formation. A reaction mechanism was developed based on the effect of iron and alkali metals catalysing the conversion of glycerol into allyl alcohol. The proposed catalyst modification technique is a straightforward method, readily applicable at a larger scale due to the simplicity of the alkali inclusion and its striking influence on the reaction selectivity. © 2014.

In this paper, we report new insights into the deactivation phenomenon of palladium based catalysts for catalytic combustion of ventilation air methane (VAM). It was found that the primary factor responsible for low temperature catalyst deactivation is the water vapour present in the feed stream. The influence of water vapour on VAM was examined by comparing the properties of fresh catalysts with catalysts following over 1000 h reaction time-on-stream. The techniques applied to characterize the catalysts included TPD, XRD, N 2 -isotherm adsorption, H 2 -chemisorption and XPS analyses. Alternating between dry and water vapour-saturated VAM feed disclosed ca. 50% reversible drop in activity. XPS analysis suggests an absence of a palladium hydroxide phase during the initial 2 h on stream, although prolonged exposure to the reactant leads to the formation of palladium hydroxide, which appears to match the progressive deactivation of the Pd/Al 2 O 3 catalyst. Introduction of VAM dust (a mixture of fine coal, CaCO 3 and aluminosilicate particles) causes a variation in catalytic activity originating from coal-dust ignition and the effect of chloride on the surface of the catalyst. In the presence of these inhibiting agents, an average methane conversion of higher than 75% over 1100 h was achieved at reaction temperatures below 600°C.

A continuous process for the conversion of glycerol to allyl alcohol, where ammonia or organic acids are added to the feed as sacrificial reductants, was investigated. Significant enhancement on the rate of formation and yield of the allyl alcohol is observed with some of the reducing agents examined over an alumina-supported iron catalyst. Optimising the molar ratio of the reductant relative to feed glycerol results in an increase in the yield of allyl alcohol from 9% (in the absence of additives) to 11.3% with ammonia, 15.1% with ammonium hydroxide, 17.8% with oxalic acid and 19.5% with formic acid. Moreover, the addition of other organic acids, which are produced in a typical glycerol conversion experiment, was studied. However, acetic and propanoic acids had little effect on the rate of formation of allyl alcohol. Analysis of the product distribution in the liquid and gas phases when oxalic and formic acids were added suggests a two-step process for the formation of allyl alcohol under the operating conditions of the reaction; the initial step involves the dehydration of glycerol while the second comprises the reduction of the species produced in step one. © the Partner Organisations 2014.

© 2014 American Chemical Society. 1,2-Bis(2,4,6-tribromophenoxy)ethane (BTBPE) is currently one of the most commonly applied novel brominated flame retardants. In this contribution, we analyze in detail the mechanisms pertinent to its thermal decomposition in view of analogous experimental findings. We demonstrate that a 1,3-hydrogen shift, leading to 2,4,6-tribromophenol (M9) and 1,3,5-tribromo-2-(vinyloxy)benzene (M10) molecules, dominates direct scission of O-CH < inf > 2 < /inf > bonds up to a temperature of ~680 K. H atom abstraction from CH < inf > 2 < /inf > sites, followed by a fission of a C-C bond, produce a 2,4,6-tribromophenoxy radical (M2) and a M10 molecule. Bimolecular condensation reactions involving M2, M9, and M10 generate several congeners of brominated diphenyl ethers and their OH/OCHCH < inf > 2 < /inf > substituents, which serve as direct precursors for the formation of polybrominated dibenzo-p-dioxins. Reaction of M9 with a model compound of a hydrocarbon chain preferentially yields M2. Strong adsorption energy of the latter on a radical site of a hydrocarbon chain suggests that mechanisms such as Langmuir-Hinshelwood, Eley-Rideal, and Diels-Alder might be operating during the formation of PBDD/Fs from brominated flame retardants (BFRs). Reactions of alkyl primary/secondary radicals and diradical with the BTBPE molecule proceed via H abstraction from a -CH < inf > 2 < /inf > - moiety.

This study presents a detailed mechanistic account of the formation of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) from polychlorinated diphenyl ethers (PCDEs). It applies the recently developed meta hybrid M06-2X functional and deploys the 2,2'-dichlorodiphenylether (2,2'-DCDE) molecule as a representative model compound for all PCDEs congeners. We find that, exceedingly high activation enthalpies prevent the direct formation of PCDFs from PCDEs via unimolecular elimination of HCl or Cl 2 . Rather, loss of an ortho H/Cl atom initiates the transformation of PCDEs into PCDD/Fs. Subsequent formation of PCDFs takes place through ring-closure reactions with modest activation enthalpies, whereas the addition of a ground state oxygen molecule at an apparent ortho radical site of a PCDE congener commences a complex, yet very exothermic, mechanism leading to the formation of PCDDs. Splitting the ether linkage through H/Cl addition at the pivot carbon constitutes a major source for the formation of chlorophenoxy radicals and chlorobenzene molecules. Our kinetic and mechanistic analyses demonstrate that, the degree and pattern of chlorination of PCDEs display a negligible effect on the formation pathways of PCDD/Fs from PCDEs. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

© 2014 American Chemical Society. This study presents a detailed investigation into the gas-phase thermal decomposition of tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBA), that is, the most widely used brominated flame retardant (BFR). Elimination of one of the methyl groups characterizes the sole dominant channel in the self-decomposition of the TBBA molecule at all temperatures. A high-pressure rate constant for this reaction is fitted to k(T) = 2.09 × 10 10 T 1.93 exp( -37000/T) s -1 . The high A factor and low activation energy for this reaction arise from the formation of a delocalized radical upon the loss of a methyl group. We calculate rate constants for the bimolecular reactions of TBBA with H, Br, and CH 3 radicals. Kinetic and mechanistic data provided herein should be instrumental to gain further understanding of the fate of TBBA during thermal degradation of materials laden with this BFR.

© 2014 the Partner Organisations. Using density functional theory calculations of periodic slabs, within the generalised gradient approximation, this study provides optimised structures for all plausible terminations of copper(ii) chloride surfaces along the three low-index orientations. The ab initio atomistic thermodynamic approach serves to construct a thermodynamic stability diagram for CuCl 2 configurations as a function of the chemical potential of chlorine (¿µ Cl (T,P)). We observe a shift in thermodynamic stability ordering at around ¿µ Cl (T,P) = -1.0 eV between a copper-chlorine terminated (001) surface (i.e., (001)CuCl) and a (001) chlorine-covered surface (i.e., (001)Cl). This conclusion accords with experimental observations that report CuCl-bulk like structures, acting as a prerequisite for the formation of CuCl 2 -bulk like arrangements in the course of copper chlorination. Profound stabilities and optimised structures of (001)CuCl and (001)Cl configurations are discussed within the context of the functionality of CuCl 2 as the chief chlorination and condensation catalyst of aromatic pollutants under conditions relevant to their formation in thermal systems, i.e. 400-1000 K, a total operating pressure of 1.0 atm and PCl 2 = 10 -6 -10 -4 atm (1.0-100.0 ppm).

A central step in the low-temperature oxidation of hydrocarbons is the abstraction of H by the hydroperoxyl radical (HO 2 ). In this study, reaction rate constants are derived theoretically for H abstraction by HO 2 from the three distinct locations of H in ethylbenzene (primary, secondary and aromatic H, with H on the ortho carbon taken as an example of unreactive aromatic H) as well as for the addition of HO 2 at the four possible aromatic sites. Potential energy surface is mapped out based on the results of computations performed with the composite CBS-QB3 theoretical method. Rate constants are fitted to modified Arrhenius forms in the wide temperature range of 300-2000K. The dominant channel at all temperatures is found to be H abstraction from the secondary C of the ethyl chain with a rate constant expression of k=1.28×10-24T3.70exp-5100Tcm3molecule-1s-1. Abstraction from the primary C also contributes significantly at higher temperatures ( > 800K) with a rate constant expression of k=2.90×10-24T3.78exp-8400Tcm3molecule-1s-1. Reasonable agreement was obtained with the limited experimental data available in the literature. Addition at the four sites of the aromatic ring and abstraction of one of the C-H aromatic bonds are relatively unimportant over the temperature range studied. We also investigate the abstraction of H from the secondary C on the ethyl chain by triplet oxygen and report the associated rate expression. The results presented herein should be useful in modelling the oxidation of alkylbenzenes at lower temperatures. © 2012.

This contribution demonstrates the sensitivity of antigorite dehydroxylation to treatment conditions and discusses the implications of the observations for scientific (i.e., dehydroxylation kinetics) and technological (i.e., energy efficient conditions and design of practical activation reactors) applications. At present, the energy cost of dehydroxylation of serpentinite ores represent the most important impediment for a large scale implementation of sequestering CO 2 by mineralization. We have analyzed changes in antigorite's derivative thermogravimetric curves (DTG) and deduced factors affecting the mass loss profiles. The imposed heating rate, type of purge gas, type of comminution and sample mass all influence the dehydroxylation curve. However, the results show no influence of material of construction of the heating vessel and flow rate of the purge gas. We report an important effect of oxidation of Fe 2+ under air purge gas that occurs prior to dehydroxylation and leads to formation of hematite skins on serpentinite particles, slowing down subsequent mass transfer and increasing the treatment temperature. From the process perspective, 75 µm particles afford optimal conditions of temperature and rate of dehydroxylation. Overall, the practical considerations, in thermally activating serpentinite ores for storing CO 2 by carbonation, comprise rapid heating, proper size reduction, prior demagnetisation, and fluidization of the powder bed. © 2012 American Chemical Society.

This contribution investigates the thermochemical and kinetic parameters pertinent to the homogeneous gas-phase formation of two groups of pollutants, polychlorinated dibenzothiophenes (PCDT) and polychlorinated thianthrenes (PCTA) from their 2-chlorothiophenol (2-CTP) precursor. We compare the enthalpic profiles of the formation mechanism of PCDT/TA with the corresponding reactions involved in the gas-phase synthesis of PCDD/F (polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans, also known as dioxins). Overall, the presence of sulfur atoms greatly reduces the activation enthalpies of the rate determining steps in reference to the oxygenated system of PCDD/F. The rate constants of all elementary reactions are calculated using the transition state theory (TST) over a wide temperature range of 300-1200 K. We performed kinetic calculations for the formation of chlorinated dibenzothiophenes and chlorinated thianthrenes that could be applied to predict yields of these pollutants from 2-CTP up to ~1200 K, that is, prior to the emergence of dechlorination and oxidation reactions. The results presented herein provide a greatly improved understanding of the gas-phase formation of the sulfur analogs of the notorious dioxins compounds. © 2013 American Chemical Society.

C-Nitroso compounds represent a class of chemical species with radical spin trapping capacity. They are widely employed to scavenge nitric oxide (NO) in biological and chemical systems and prospectively could be applied to reduce and control NO formation from important chemical processes. In this study, we examined the physicochemical properties of four ortho-substituted aromatic nitroso compounds, 3,5-dibromo-4-nitrosobenzenesulfonate (DBNBS), 4-nitrosobenzenesulfonate (NBS), 3,5-dimethyl-4-nitrosobenzenesulfonate (DMNBS), and 3,5-dichloro-4-nitrosobenzenesulfonate (DCNBS). These compounds, like most C-nitroso spin traps, exist in a monomer-dimer equilibrium, and only the monomeric form is active as a free radical spin scavenger. The influence of the aromatic ring substituent(s) on the dissociation of the dimer to give the monomer was investigated using UV-vis spectrophotometry. We describe the thermodynamic and kinetic parameters associated with the monomer-dimer equilibria, which allow us to provide a mechanistic understanding of NO trapping by C-nitroso compounds. © 2013 American Chemical Society.

This contribution aims to elucidate the chemical aspects of the autoxidation of linseed oil that may lead to self-heating and fires, especially for linseed oil doped with salts of transition metals, in the presence of an additional fuel, such as cotton. We examine the formation of peroxides, which function as important intermediates in the autoxidation reaction. In particular, we describe the relationship between the formation of peroxides and changes in the degree of unsaturation, together with other structural and compositional modifications occurring in the molecules of unsaturated fatty acid esters. Transition metal salt catalysts were found to decompose peroxides which had built up during the autoxidation reaction of linseed oil, thereby increasing the number of reactive radicals and resulting in higher product yields. Higher temperatures increased the rate of peroxide decomposition. The overall activation energy for peroxide formation corresponds to 71±1 kJ mol -1 . FTIR analysis of oil film demonstrated the progressive decrease in the concentration of cis non-conjugated double bonds, formation of trans conjugated double bonds, appearance of hydroxyl groups and the broadening of the carbonyl peak. The overall rate of disappearance of double bonds follows first order kinetics with a rate constant of 0.030±0.007 h -1 . © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

This contribution compares the formation of toxic species, polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDD/F) and their precursors such as polychlorobenzenes (PCBz) and polychlorophenols (PCP), during oxidation of 4-chlorobiphenyl (4-CB) in a laboratory-scale apparatus, under conditions similar to those that occur in fires and waste combustion. The experiments were conducted using two gas flow reactors made of 99.5% alumina and high purity quartz, respectively. A sampling system intercepted the gaseous products leaving the reactors, trapping the volatile organic compounds (VOC; i.e., PCBz and PCP) and PCDD/F on a XAD-2 cartridge. The analysis of VOC involved high resolution gas chromatography (HRGC) - quadrupole mass spectrometry (QMS) while HRGC - ion trap (IT) MS/MS quantitated the PCDD/F produced. For the experiments using the alumina reactor, VOC analysis revealed the formation of PCBz and PCP, commencing at temperatures as low as 400 °C. Other products included benzaldehyde, naphthalene, 3-ethylbenzaldehyde, 1-chloro-4-ethynylbenzene and benzofuran. Gaseous species such as CO, CO 2 and HCl were detected and quantitated either by Fourier transform infra-red spectroscopy (FTIR) or ion chromatography (IC). Similar products were found to form in the quartz reactor, however, their formation commenced at 500 °C, with their yields significantly lower than those found for the alumina reactor. The present measurements indicate that surface reactions govern the oxidation of 4-CB between 300 and 650 °C for the alumina reactor, and between 450 and 600 °C for the quartz reactor. At 700 °C, both reactors operate similarly, with the oxidation process dominated by the gas phase reactions. With respect to dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans, only isomers of chlorinated monochlorodibenzofuran (MCDF) and chlorinated dichlorodibenzofuran (DCDF) were found at low temperatures (300 to 450 °C), with 3-MCDF as the dominant congener. In our system, they appear to form in gas phase reactions involving 4-CB and singlet oxygen (1A g O 2 ), the latter generated on the reactor walls. The present results indicate that the combustion of 4-CB in fires will be dominated by catalytic surfaces of fly ash below 600 °C, and by gas-phase kinetics above 700 °C. © 2013 International Association for Fire Safety Science.

The adsorption complex of hydrogen chloride on copper-modified ZSM-5 was studied by FTIR and theoretical calculations. The results indicate that the Cl atom of hydrogen chloride is bound to the Cu cations when adsorbed at low pressures ( < 1 µbar). At higher pressures, HCl adsorbs on the zeolite Brønsted acid sites as well as is hydrogen bonded to the Cu in a larger cluster. Using in situ infrared spectroscopy, we observed a sharp decrease in stretching vibrational frequency of HCl of about 700 cm -1 compared with the H-Cl stretching vibration of gaseous hydrochloric acid. The findings were supported by density functional theory cluster quantum chemical calculations. © 2013 American Chemical Society.

The setting of classical configuration space kinetic theory of polymeric fluids is extended by adopting the field of internal momentum into the set of independent state variables. The internal momentum predicted by the extended theory compares well with the internal momentum seen in molecular simulations. The extended theory is also shown to provide an intrinsically consistent formulation of the time evolution of macromolecules with internal friction.

The paper describes a newly-developed compressed-air foam (CAF) system, based on an overhead fixed-pipe installation, and presents results showing its fire suppression performance. The CAF system generates foams by injecting compressed air into the flowing foam solution. The resulting foam is characterized by excellent fire-mitigation properties. This is because compressed-air foams, at the expansion ratios of between 1:4 tc 1:10, consist of very small and uniform-in-size air bubbles. The system needs little water to operate and is able to provide effective protection against Class A and B fires. The system's performance was compared to the performance of water mist and sprinkler-based installations. The experiments confirmed that the CAF system is effective in suppressing Class A and B fires. For the scenarios evaluated, the compressed-air system generated foams with sufficient momentum to penetrate the fire plume and to reach the fuel surface. The experimental results indicate that, in an open space, the foam system performs much better than water mist in extinguishing wood crib and flammable liquid pool fires. In an enclosed space, both water mist and compressed-air foam perform equally well against flammable liquid fires. The suppression performance of the CAF system on large wood crib fires was much better than a sprinkler system.

Direct simulations of macromolecular fluids are carried out for flows between parallel plates and in expanding and contracting channels. The macromolecules are modeled as FENE dumbbells with soft disks or Lennard-Jones dumbbell-dumbbell interactions. The results are presented in terms of profiles and contour plots of velocity, pressure, temperature, density, and flow fields. In addition the data for potential energy, shear stress, and the normal components of the stress tensor are collected. In general, an excellent agreement is found between the simulated profiles and the well-known flow structures, such as flow separation and formation of viscous eddies, indicating that micro-hydrodynamics is a viable tool in linking macroscopic phenomena with the underlying physical mechanisms. The simulations are performed in the Newtonian regime, for medium-size systems comprising up to 3888 dumbbells. This number is sufficiently large to control boundary and particle number effects. The flow is induced by gravity. The traditional stochastic (thermal) and periodic boundary conditions are employed. Also, diffusive boundary conditions, which could include a stagnant fluid layer and repulsive potential walls, are developed. The scaling problems, which are related to the application of a large external force in a microscopic system (of the size of the order 100 Å), result in extreme pressure and temperature gradients. In addition, the viscosity and thermal conductivity coefficients obtained from velocity and temperature profiles of the channel flow are presented. These results are confirmed independently from modeling of Couette flow by the SLLOD equations of motion and from the Evans algorithm for thermal conductivity. © 1995 Steinkopff Verlag.

A novel nonequilibrium molecular dynamics, originating in mesoscopic theory of suspensions, is introduced to investigate the behavior of model polymeric fluids consisting of several hundred ellipsoids of revolution (spheroids) that interact via the Gay-Berne potential. This dynamics is used to generate new microstructural, thermodynamic and rheological data. The microcanonical equtions of motion for the translational and angular momenta as well as for mass-centers and orientational unit vectors are derived from a Hamiltonian. These expresssions are then augmented by SLLOD-like and Gaussian thermostat terms added consistently to equations for both the rotational and translational degrees of freedom; the role of Gaussian thermostat is to maintain constant kinetic temperature of the assembly of spheroids. The thermodynamic results are calculated along one isotherm (nondimensional temperature T maintained at unity). Rheology is investigated for two state points (namely for particle number density p equal to 0.25, 0.4 and T set to 1), that lie well inside the isotropic phase if no external flow is applied. A state point is defined by the fluid's temperature T,. and the concentration of particles per unit volume p. As indicated by snapshots of molecular configurations, at the intermediate shear rates (nondimensional shear rate approximately 1-2), ellipsoids become aligned to the direction of flow and the stress tensor begins to be nonsymmetric. At even higher shear rates, this configuration breaks down leading to the formation of a transitory isotropic-type fluid, and then to the build-up of a highly ordered structure exhibiting global orientation of particles in the direction of the vorticity axis. For ¿{variant} = 0.4, the first (N 1 ) and the second (N 2 ) normal stress differences are positive and negative respectively, but at low densities (¿{variant} = 0.25), n 1 becomes slightly negative. In addition to the stress tensor, we compute the conformation tensor, the order parameter and the components of the pair radial distribution function. At high shear rates the radial distribution functions become significantly anisotropic. Furthermore, we investigate the phenomenon of the stress overshoot at the inception of the simple shear flow from a molecular perspective, and study the evolution of the distribution of translational velocities as a function of the shear rate. © 1994.

We report new macro-rheological results extracted from non-equilibrium molecular dynamics (NEMD) simulations of Couette flow. We investigate atomic liquids for new state points, and in addition two types of dumbbell liquids: (1) finitely extensible nonlinear elastic (FENE) and (2) newly defined generalized Lennard-Jones (GLJ), up to a nondimensional shear rate of 15. The dumbbell liquids exhibit shear thinning, non-zero first and second normal stress differences, and volumetric dilatancy. These effects are weakly sensitive to details in shape of the intra-molecular potentials, and to the dominant frequency associated with vibrations of dumbbells. However, the Newtonian viscosity of dumbbell liquids strongly depends on the size of dumbbells. The onset of shear thinning of FENE and GLJ dumbbells is delayed to higher shear rates in comparison with atomic liquids. In general, for the entire investigated region, we see that dumbbells are slightly more elastic than atomic liquids. © 1993.

The microscopic and the mesoscopic results are presented for several finitely extensible non-linear elastic (FENE) dumbbell fluids investigated under imposed flow according to SLLOD dynamics. The contracted distribution functions are calculated in both position and velocity spaces, and the fluid structure is probed by two conformation tensors. It is observed that dumbbells form a variety of short and long range structures depending on the imposed shear rate and the size of a single dumbbell. The assumption of Maxwellian distributed bead velocities, which is often used in the elastic dumbbell theories, is shown not to be satisfied except at low shear rates. Under shear, the distribution of the end-to-end distances is similar to the Gibbs equilibrium distribution function in configuration space if intra-molecular interactions are much stronger than inter-molecular forces. On the average, the longest dumbbells are found at between 30° and 50° to the direction of flow, and the shortest at between -50° and -30°. © 1993.

Pitch-like vacuum-distilled residue from the CANMET coprocessing process was treated in a stationary particle reactor with argon/hydrogen plasmas. The production of light, unsaturated hydrocarbons was optimized as a function of the average plasma temperature, composition, and residence time. The unconverted residue was characterized in terms of its elemental and mineralogical content. In pure argon plasma, the conversion to acetylene was about 14% and did not vary appreciably with temperature; other hydrocarbons were detected only in trace quantities. In argon/hydrogen plasmas the maximum conversion to acetylene and ethylene (25%) was attained between 2900 and 3400 K. Large quantities of soot were produced, but no liquid hydrocarbons were detected. Sulfur was fixed in the unconverted residue by the reduction of calcium sulfate to calcium sulfide. © 1992, American Chemical Society. All rights reserved.

© 2015 The Authors. We present a modelling approach for the continuous aqueous carbonation of serpentinite leachate derived from carbonic acid, suitable for practical application to large-scale CO 2 sequestration. Experiments involved bubbling of gaseous carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) at a partial pressure of 1 bar into an aqueous suspension of thermally activated serpentinite. Isothermal heating of the ground mineral (-53 µm) at 720 °C for a total period of 30 min resulted in a reactive mineral showing some development of forsterite from the predominantly antigorite basis, with residual hydroxyl content of 53.9 %. An Avrami-Erofe'ev solid state model was fitted to early stage dissolution data ( < 10 % Mg extraction) and this was used in conjunction with a kinetic formulation of the carbonate system to model continuous mineral dissolution. Dissolution over a contact time of 5 min was sufficient to produce an alkalised solution that was then degassed in a batch operation at 30°C yielding nesquehonite. X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) analyses were used to assess changes to the heat activated serpentinite prior to and following dissolution. ICP-OES analysis, and alkalinity measurements were used to estimate magnesium (Mg) and carbon elemental balances.

In recent years, the use of nitrogenous industrial explosives has come under intense scrutiny by environmental agencies due to emission of toxic fumes to the atmosphere during blasting of ammonium nitrate based explosives. Ammonium nitrate (AN) is a major ingredient in ammonium nitrate fuel oil (ANFO), and emulsion explosives, which are commonly applied in trench or surface mines blasting, and construction operations. It is well known that ammonium nitrate based explosives release toxic fumes (which contains NO and NO 2 emissions) under certain blasting condition, and/or oxygen rich explosive formulations. We investigated the effect of potassium on crystal structure, and thermal behaviour of ammonium nitrate. We observed multiphase structures in co-recrystallised ammonium nitrate containing low (2-4 mol %) and high ( > 25 mol %) concentrations of potassium in the crystallisation solution; mol % is based only on K + and NH 4 + . Co-recrystallised salts were characterise using X-ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning electron microscopy - energy dispersive spectroscopy (SEM-EDS), Inductively coupled plasma - optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES), and Thermogravimetric analyser and differential scanning calorimeter (TGA/DSC). In addition, we report concentration profiles of NO during thermal analyses of corecrystallised potassium ammonium nitrates. The results obtained from thermal decomposition of the co-recrystallised potassium ammonium nitrate salts showed decrease in production of NO. and 3-5 mol % K was the optimal concentration when compared with pure AN.

© Copyright 2014 International association for fire safety science. This paper reports the ignition temperature and emissivity of heterogeneous materials characterised by high void fraction of between 0.92 and 0.94 and composed of loose particles of shredded grass and paper, planed wood, shredded plastic bags, as well as sugar and bread, with about 95 % of the particles (by mass) of less than 50 mm in size. These materials reflect a typical composition and void fraction of so-called refusederived fuels (RDF), which are obtained from municipal solid waste, then densified and combusted for energy recovery. An infrared pyrometer, with a spectral response range of 8 to 14 µm, recorded the surface temperature of the surrogate RDF, prior to the onset of the flaming combustion, in a stand alone mass loss calorimeter operated at 20 and 45 kW m -2 . The overlapping spectral ranges of the pyrometer and the radiator heater necessitated the development of a practical methodology to obtain the actual surface temperature from the apparent measurements, which included the effect of the reflected radiation. In addition to surface temperatures (292 - 325 °C for 20 kW m -2 and 250 - 294 °C for 45 kW m -2 ), in this contribution, we estimate the actual emissivities (0.95 - 0.98) of the materials from the intensity of the reflected radiation. KEYWORDS: cone calorimeter, ignitability, piloted ignition, ignition temperature, ignition delay, ignition mechanism, heat transfer in fires, fire properties, emissivity, firepoint, biofuels.
