Combustion, Explosion, and Shock Waves


The ignition temperature of the 40% H2 + air mixture in the presence of metallic palladium (70°C, 1 atm) was found to be ~200°C lower than above the platinum surface (260°C, 1 atm). In addition, Pd initiated the ignition of (30–60% H2 + 70–40% CH4)stoich + air mixtures at temperatures below 350°C, while Pt foil did not initiate the burning of these mixtures up to 450°C. The effective activation energy of ignition over Pd was evaluated to be ~3.5 kcal/mol. It was found using a hyperspectral sensor that the system of emission bands of H2O* was absent in the range 570–650 nm in the presence of leucosapphire; a possible explanation of this phenomenon was given. An explanation was proposed for the appearance of an additional source of excited water molecules emitting in the range 900–970 nm.
