Electrowinning With Amalgam Electrode, Ralph V. Anderson Jr. May 1951

Electrowinning With Amalgam Electrode, Ralph V. Anderson Jr.

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Amalgam Metallurgy, a relatively new expression in the technology of metal extraction, was first chosen to describe certain new processes developed at the Duisburg Copper Works in Germany. The idea of using mercury, a costly and poisonous metal, as an intermediate in heavy chemical industry and in polarography are of recent origin; with the exception of a series of patents of little signif­icance and occasional comments in the literature, the work is hardly known.


Polarographic Analysis Applied To Metallurgical Solutions And Products, Donald W. Johnson May 1951

Polarographic Analysis Applied To Metallurgical Solutions And Products, Donald W. Johnson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The polarograph has been applied to a large number of chemical and metallurgical analyses, and is especially applicable to solution control analysis and to the deter­mination of minute quantities of ions in the presence of large amounts of other ions.


Determination Of The Activities Of Indium And Mercury And The Vapor Pressures Of Mercury Over These Amalgams From 0.00216 To 0.02494 Mole Fraction Indium At 25 C And From 0.00067 To 0.02410 Mole Fraction Indium At 70 C By Electromotive Force Measurements, Arthur H. Lutts May 1951

Determination Of The Activities Of Indium And Mercury And The Vapor Pressures Of Mercury Over These Amalgams From 0.00216 To 0.02494 Mole Fraction Indium At 25 C And From 0.00067 To 0.02410 Mole Fraction Indium At 70 C By Electromotive Force Measurements, Arthur H. Lutts

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

This work was performed to determine by experimental means the activities of both indium and mercury and the vapor pressures of mercury over these amalgams at 25 and 70 C.


An Investigation Of The Gallium-Indium Binary System, Allen D. Kennedy May 1950

An Investigation Of The Gallium-Indium Binary System, Allen D. Kennedy

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Twenty-four alloys, at 5 weight per cent or smaller intervals, were investigated by the thermal method. Very low temperatures had to be attained, because most of the alloy melts supercooled remarkably. Analysis showed only a liquidus and solidus line, and the solidus temperature was the same for each alloy.


The Alloys Of Gallium And Indium, C. J. Adams May 1950

The Alloys Of Gallium And Indium, C. J. Adams

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Thermal analysis VIPS used to construct cooling and heating curves from which the phase diagram was determined. The data for the entire set of cooling curves were obtained by the use of mercury thermo­meters.


The Determination Of Aluminum In The Presence Of Manganese And Iron By The Use Of A Mercury Cathode, William R. Opie May 1942

The Determination Of Aluminum In The Presence Of Manganese And Iron By The Use Of A Mercury Cathode, William R. Opie

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Since 1880, when Wolcott Gibbs made the suggestion that mercury could be used as a cathode in gravimetric electroanalysis, many articles have appeared in literature either criticizing the method or citing successful results which have been obtained by it.


Some Investigations On Quantitative Measurement Of Amalgamation, Charles Moore Jun 1941

Some Investigations On Quantitative Measurement Of Amalgamation, Charles Moore

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Amalgamation is a process in which precious metals are collected by mercury. The exact way in which the mercury holds the other metals is not positively known. It is proba­ble that a series of intermetallic compounds form. Very little work has been done so far on the theory of amalgama­tion.


The Quantitve Measurement Of Amalgamation, Robert A. Mcguire Jan 1940

The Quantitve Measurement Of Amalgamation, Robert A. Mcguire

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Mercury has been known since ancient times. In fact, one mine, the "Almaden" in Spain, has been worked continuously since Roman times. It has been used during all this time for the recovery of free gold from gold concentrates, and from black sand and galena in concentrates from placer work.


The Effects Of Lime On The Amalgamation Of Gold., Rollien R. Wells May 1936

The Effects Of Lime On The Amalgamation Of Gold., Rollien R. Wells

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

An amalgam is an alloy of mercury with other metals, and amalgamation is the art of making or forming amalgams. In metallurgical language the word is limited to the means adopted for the recovery of gold and silver from their ores by the use of mercury.


A Metallurgical Study Of Gold Ores, Alfred A. Bloom May 1935

A Metallurgical Study Of Gold Ores, Alfred A. Bloom

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Gold is widely distributed in the earth's crust in small quantities. Gold is found in nature in two forms; the element itself and the compound gold telluride. In all cases, silver in some proportion is an alloying constituent.
