Reaction Kinetics and Combustion Dynamics of I4O9 and Aluminum Mixtures Dylan K. Smith1, Michelle L. Pantoya1, Jeffrey S. Parkey2, Mehmet Kesmez2 1Department of Mechanical Engineering, Texas Tech University, 2Lynntech Inc. A protocol for measuring flame speeds of a reactive mixture composed of tetraiodine nonoxide (I4O9) and aluminum (Al) is presented. A method for resolving reaction kinetics using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is also presented. It was found that I4O9 is 150% more reactive than other iodine(V) oxides.
Fabrication of VB2/Air Cells for Electrochemical Testing Jessica Stuart1, Ruben Lopez2, Jason Lau1, Xuguang Li2, Mahesh Waje2, Matthew Mullings2, Christopher Rhodes2, Stuart Licht1 1Department of Chemistry, The George Washington University, 2Lynntech A protocol is presented to study multi-electron metal/air battery systems by using previous technology developed for the zinc/air cell. Electrochemical testing is then performed on fabricated batteries to evaluate performance.
