The photochemical decomposition of pyrene and benzo[a]pyrene, as adsorbates deposited from the vapor phase, has been examined on eight coal stack ashes of diverse origin and properties. Similar studies using alumina, silica gel, controlled-porosity glass, and graphite adsorbents also have been performed. Phototransformation of the adsorbates proceeds more(More)
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons adsorbed onto coal fly ash were found to be stabilized against photochemical decomposition. However, a number of adsorbed polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons will spontaneously oxidize in the absence of light, with those compounds containing a benzylic carbon being particularly susceptible. The decomposition rate appears to be(More)
An improved method over a previous technique has been developed to determine the ppm oxide concentration of fluoride salts. The oxide is released as oxygen gas by the reaction of the test salt with potassium bromotetrafluoride at 450 °C. The molecular oxygen released is then passed through a zirconia oxygen pump which selectively removes the oxygen. The(More)
The following tungsten fluorides have been synthesized by simple addition reactions or by reduction with tungsten metal at elevated temperature: KWF7, K2WF8, MWF6 (M = K, Na, Rb, Cs), K2WF7, M3WF8 (M = K, Na, Rb), and K3WF6. The compounds were characterized by their Raman spectra and by cyclic voltammetry in the molten FLINAK eutectic melt (46.5, 11.5, and(More)
The efficiencies of extraction of vapor-deposited pyrene from a high-carbon coal stack ash by Soxhlet extraction with methanol, ultrasonic extraction with toluene, acid pretreatment and subsequent ultrasonic extraction with toluene, batch extraction with toluene, and supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) are compared. SFE using CO(2) or isobutane yielded(More)
