Structure and dynamics in network liquids

Brookes, Richard January 2002 (has links)
The onset of the Glass Transition in tetrahedral network liquids is associated with the over-constrained nature of the structure and the low ability of the ions to move relative to one another. We investigate the interplay between the structure and dynamics in BeF<sub>2</sub>, a template for the ideal tetrahedral system. We see that the ionic diffusion coefficients can be predicted from the calculated viscosity of the system using the Eyring hopping model of diffusion, with a diffusive jump length approximately corresponding to the radius of the first coordination sphere. Novel correlation functions are developed which enable us to identify the events responsible, on an atomistic level, for the structural rearrangements which correspond to the barrier crossing in this hopping model of diffusion, and we find that these events can be identified as the exchange of ions in the local coordination poly- hedra, or cage, of the cations. The calculation of the rate of the decay of these cages allows us to predict the macroscopic diffusion coefficients with the definition of a jump length over which the diffusive hops occur, and to scale the behaviour of the system at different temperatures by setting the cage lifetime as an effective clock for the system. Comparison between simulations performed with and without the inclusion of the effects of anion polarisation suggest that the polarisation plays an important role in the ability of the system to undergo the cage decay events and to create the defect sites which facilitate a decrease in the number of constraints acting in the system. The decay of the cages describes the local rearrangement of the ions in the first coordi- nation shell of a given ion. The development of other correlation functions allows us to investigate the spatial relationship between these cage decay events over longer length and time scales, and also to investigate how the local structure of the first coordination shells of the cations relates to their ability to undergo the cage decay events and to form the defects. These functions are then used to investigate the link between the structure and the dy- namics in some molten trichloride systems, which have different network structures, and hence a different relationship between the cage decay and the diffusion. Finally, we investigate the effect of changing the potential parameters in BeF2, and we find that the effective polarisability of the system can be controlled such that a less diffusive system may be described, giving a good representation of both structural and dynamical experimental data.

Synthesis of substances related to rubrementinum salts

Thackray, David January 1961 (has links)
In 9152, the evidence available was still insufficient to decide between various structures proposed for the rubrementinium salts. The author has therefore attempted to gather further evidence. The evidence available in the literature is discussed in Part II, and the author's work in Parts III and IV of this thesis. The substances which the present author has termed rubremetinium salts have more than one name in the literature. Karrer uses the name “dehydroemetin”. Pyman, who discovered the salts, at first used “rubremetine”. It was later found, however, that the salts are quaternary, so Pyman applied to the quaternary ion the name “rubremetinium”. This name will be used throughout the present thesis.

Reduction mechanisms in fused salt-alloy systems

John, Thomas Grant January 1966 (has links)
Reactions between ions in LiCl-KCl eutectic melt and lead alloys have been studied kinetically between 370 and 450°C. Diffusion of the reducing ionic species across the salt-phase boundary layer was shown to be the rate controlling step for the reductions of Pb⁺⁺ , Cd⁺⁺ , Ag⁺ and In⁺⁺⁺ by lithium and of Cr⁺⁺⁺ by lead. Values of the salt-phase boundary layer thickness were estimated. Limited solubility of the reduced metal in the molten alloy resulted in metal deposition at the phase boundary during the reductions of Co⁺⁺, Cr⁺⁺⁺and Ti⁺⁺⁺by lithium. An apparent homogeneous reaction in the salt occurred during the reductions of Ni⁺⁺ and Pt⁺⁺ by lithium. The mechanisms have not been established but may involve solubility of either lithium or a Li-Pb intermetallic compound in the salt. The interfacial reactions were primarily electrochemical in nature, and never rate controlling. The diffusion coefficients of a number of ions in LiCl-KCl at 400 C were determined. The values showed that ionic diffusion in this eutectic was influenced primarily by the ionic charge of the diffusing species. / Applied Science, Faculty of / Materials Engineering, Department of / Graduate

The Dropping Gallium Electrode in Fused Salts

Dickie, D. Kent 01 1900 (has links)
This paper is an attempt to appraise the usefulness of the dropping gallium electrode (DGE) in fused LiNO3-KNO3, to compare it with the dropping mercury electrode (DME), and to study the DGE in fused LiCl-KCl.
