Methanol

View this topic in
Methanol, also known as methyl alcohol, wood alcohol, wood naphtha or wood spirits, is a chemical with the formula CH3OH (often abbreviated MeOH). It is the simplest alcohol, and is a light, volatile, colorless, flammable liquid with a distinctive odor very similar to, but slightly sweeter than, ethanol (drinking alcohol). At room temperature, it is a polar liquid, and is used as an antifreeze, solvent, fuel, and as a denaturant for ethanol. (Wikipedia.org)

  • On Increasing the Reliability of Fabrication and Handling of Large High Purity Germanium Detectors

    A technique has been developed in the fabrication of high purity germanium gamma radiation detectors which consistently allows the application of large amounts of overvoltage. A chemically grown oxide layer to which Pd metallization adheres strongly forms a rugged surface barrier. Cycling temerature and between dry nitrogen and ambient air, changing contact fixtures, storage and transferring to different cryostats result in no significant changes in the initially good I-V and noise characteristics.

  • Measurement of Residual Solvents in Thiamine Hydrochloride by Static Headspace Gas Chromatography

    A rapid general method for the determination of residual solvents in thiamine was studied. This paper demonstrated static headspace gas chromatography (HS/GC) with either flame ionization detection (FID) or mass spectrometry (MS) for the determination of volatile residual solvents in pharmaceutical products. The analytical method performance characteristics were investigated, including the repeatability, the accuracy and the detection limit of determination. The results showed that the method had very good sensitivities (detection limits under 9.45 μg/mL) and precision (under 7.35% RSD) for all solvents. The rates of recovery were 98.59%, 95.25%, 103.89% and 99.88% for methanol, ethanol, N, N-dimethyllformamide and ethyl ether, respectively.

  • In-situ FTIR-diffuse reflection study of methanol oxidation mechanisms on fuel cell anodes

    The catalytic surfaces of membrane electrode assemblies in direct methanol/oxygen fuel cells were investigated in-situ by Fourier transform infrared-diffuse reflection spectroscopy. A novel, temperature controlled (90/spl deg/C), single cell fuel cell assembly with an infrared transparent window was constructed to facilitate such studies. Pt-black and Pt/Ru were studied as anode catalysts with platinum black on the cathode side. The vibrational modes observed on the surface of the methanol anodes include those of formaldehyde and formic acid. CO is the primary intermediate of methanol oxidation on Pt-black and Pt-Ru anode catalysts. The intensity of CO adsorption modes on Pt-Ru is less than on Pt-black. Formaldehyde oxidation on Pt-black produces more CO intermediate in comparison with formic acid oxidation. Possible mechanisms for methanol, formaldehyde, and formic acid oxidation on the anode surfaces are discussed.

  • Fabrication of flexible micro flow sensor for use in micro reformer

    Mass production of micro-reformers raises various problems still unsolved, such as the evaluation of their internal temperature and flow rate. Such issues influence the efficiency of micro reformers. To our knowledge, no investigation has elucidated the internal operation of micro reformers. Hence, this work fabricates micro flow sensors on a flexible substrate using the micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technique within the micro reformer. This study investigated the feasibility of the aqua regia by wet etching in controlling the depth, width and roughness of a stainless steel flow channel. In the future, a micro thermal sensor in a micro-reformer will be applied to yield values of operating parameters to improve micro-reformer design and performance. The reaction inside the micro-reformer must be controlled and adjusted in real time. Experimental results demonstrate that the accuracy and sensitivity of the micro thermal sensor was 0.5°C and 1.805×10-3/°C, respectively.

  • Modeling and simulation of azeotropic distillation for chloroform (1) + methanol (2) + acetone (3)

    Azeotropic distillation is a special case of multicomponent distillation used for separation of binary mixtures which are either difficult or impossible to separate by ordinary fractionation. It is commonly used to separate close boiling mixtures with far fewer trays than in conventional distillation and with less circulation, resulting in lower equipment and energy costs. It is widely used for the dehydration of alcohols and is being applied in new areas of chemical processing because of its efficiency. The work is mainly focus on the separation of azeotropic mixtures. Selection of solvent plays an important role in industry to break the azeotropes in easy way. The solvent is selected in such a way that it should break the azeotropic mixture and also should form azeotropic mixture with one of the original component. Determining the existence of homogeneous azeotropes together with their composition, temperature and pressure is important from both theoretical and practical standpoints in the analysis of phase behavior and in the synthesis and design of separation system employing distillation. Different moles of solvent are added to the existence composition of azeotropic mixtures at constant temperature and pressure. Raoult's law is taken in the modeling to get vapor mixture from given liquid mixture calculated after addition of the solvent to the original azeotropic mixture.

  • Effects of Pyridine and Methanol on the Biodegradation of 2-methylpyridine by Activated Sludge under Denitrifying Conditions

    Lab-scale batch experiments were conducted to investigate the biodegradation of 2-methylpyridine as sole carbon source under denitrifying conditions. Moreover, effects of pyridine and methanol on the biodegradation of 2-methylpyridine were also studied. Under denitrifying conditions, 2-methylpyridine of 100 mg/L was degraded in 13 h as sole carbon source. When pyridine was used as co-substrate with 2-methylpyridine, 2-methylpyridine degradation was inhibited, and pyridine was degraded prior to 2-methylpyridine. On the contrary, methanol promoted the degradation of 2-methylpyridine.

  • Fringing Field Correction of Admittance Model for Open-Ended Coaxial Sensor

    This letter presents an improved method to calculate the aperture admittance for an open-ended coaxial sensor. The accuracy of the variational integral admittance equation is enhanced by adding universal lumped capacitance correction terms. The corrected capacitance is expressed as a function of aperture size, operating frequency and relative permittivity of the sample under test.

  • Degradation of 2,4,6-Trichlorophenol by Hydrogen Peroxide Catalyzed by Nano-Iron

    In this paper, the degradation of 2,4,6-trichlorophenol (TCP) by hydrogen peroxide catalyzed by nano-iron was studied. Nano-iron was obtained through chemical reduction of FeSO4·7H2O and KBH4. The influences of pH, the concentration of H2O2, temperature, ionic strength and the amount of nano-iron on the degradation of TCP were investigated. The result showed that under the optimized condition, more than 95 percent of the TCP can be degraded in 60 min. Initial pH was proved to have significant effect on the degradation and lower pH brought faster degradation rate. When initial pH was 3, the effect was the best.
