Polarographic Determination Of Germanium, Calvin Leo Stevenson May 1953

Polarographic Determination Of Germanium, Calvin Leo Stevenson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In the past germanium has been determined by either wet methods or by the spectograph; the spectograph being used for the determination of very small amounts of ger­manium and wet methods used when more than one hundredth of one percent germanium is present. Both of these analyti­cal schemes have weaknesses.


The Decomposition Of Calcium Tungstate And Synthetic Scheelite With Hydrochloric Acid, Robert R. Beebe May 1953

The Decomposition Of Calcium Tungstate And Synthetic Scheelite With Hydrochloric Acid, Robert R. Beebe

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The decomposition of scheelite with hydrochloric acid was studied under conditions of variable acid concentration, time and temperature. The reactions were traced by weigh­ing material untransformed and, in some cases, by analyzing the transformation products.


A Study Of The Effects Of The Chloride Ion On The Lead-Silver Anodes And On The Lead Tenor Of The Zinc Deposit In Zinc Electrolysis, William A. Mitchell May 1953

A Study Of The Effects Of The Chloride Ion On The Lead-Silver Anodes And On The Lead Tenor Of The Zinc Deposit In Zinc Electrolysis, William A. Mitchell

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The electrolyte used in the commercial production of electrolytic zinc from zinc sulphate solutions contains small amounts of impurities each of which has its own effects upon the process. Impurities such as antimony, cobalt, nickel, and iron tend to lower the current efficiency while other impurities such as chlorine, fluorine, and nitrates tend to increase the corrosion of the lead anodes and thereby increase the lead tenor of the zinc deposit.


A Study Of The Beneficiation Of Low-Grade Domestic Chromite, Darrell Edward Bodie May 1953

A Study Of The Beneficiation Of Low-Grade Domestic Chromite, Darrell Edward Bodie

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Chromite, a strategic mineral, is being consumed in ever increasing quantities in the United States today. Although the United States imports practically all of the chromite that is being consumed, it is gradually becoming necessary to exploit the low-grade deposits that are located within the United States, and also the low-grade deposits of Canada.
