Lightning Strike Fusion: Extreme Reduction and Metal-Silicate Liquid Immiscibility
Thermodynamic calculations indicate that temperatures in excess of 2000 K and reducing conditions approaching those of the SiO2-Si buffer were needed to form the coexisting metallic and silicate liquids. Expand
The Application of Vinylogous Iminium Salt Derivatives and Microwave Accelerated Vilsmeier-Haack Reactions to Efficient Relay Syntheses of the Polycitone and Storniamide Natural Products.
Studies directed at the synthesis of polycitone and storniamide natural products via vinylogous iminium salts and microwave accelerated Vilsmeier-Haack formylations are described. The successfulExpand
Further studies on the application of vinylogous amides and β-halovinylaldehydes to the regiospecific synthesis of unsymmetrical, polyfunctionalized 2,3,4- and 1,2,3,4- substituted pyrroles.
A detailed study of the reaction of α-aminoacid esters with vinylogous amides and also β-halovinylaldehydes for the regiospecific synthesis of 2,3,4-trisubstituted and 1,2,3-4-tetrasubStituted pyrroles is described. Expand
The effect of Mo morphology on the performance of Cu(In,Ga)Se/sub 2/ thin films
The properties of sputtered and electron-beam evaporated Mo are compared, and the resulting impacts on performance of co-evaporated CIGS devices deposited on each type of back contact areExpand
A non-contact low-cost sensor for improved repeatability in co-evaporated CIGS
A low-cost, non-contact sensor that provides endpoint detectionfor each stage in a three-stage CuInxGa1−xSe2 (CIGS( deposition is described. CIGS and precursoremissivity data providing theExpand
Plutonium recovery from spent direct oxide reduction salts by chloride anion exchange
Chloride anion exchange has been investigated for recovery of plutonium from Direct Oxide Reduction (DOR) waste salts. Limited experimental results indicate that the conditions for 8.5M totalExpand
Aqueous methods for recovery of plutonium from pyrochemical residues
Studies of the recovery of plutonium from the pyrochemical residue salts from the Direct Oxide Reduction (DOR) and Electrorefining (ER) processes have shown that chloride anion exchange is useful andExpand
Effect of maximum Cu ratio during three-stage CIGS growth documented by design of experiment
The impact of a Cu-rich growth period during three-stage CIGS co-evaporation on device performance was examined. Design of experiments was utilized to determine effect magnitudes and statisticalExpand
