Bob Higgins commences fully automated Ni + LiAlH4 experiment

Written by Robert Greenyer on .

The GO button has just been clicked for an automated Ni + LiAlH4 experiment. Whilst Bob will always be able to intervene, but if he doesn't, it will take 6 days.
 
The experiment contains 1.02g of pre-processed AH-50 carbonyl Ni powder and 0.11g of LiAlH4. That was all that he could fit in the 2" end of my smaller ceramic tube.
 
There is a very slow temperature rise and the system will not be >600C until late tomorrow. The script includes soaking and evacuation cycles to clean out residual water vapor and O2.
 
Bob will be putting the data files, photos, and and videos in the following shared Google drive folder
 

In the second attempt, the data is was collated in the following directory

From Bob Higgins:
"Well, an additional leak was found - believe it or not, it was a defective stainless steel tube. It was defective because it had holes in it! New tubing has been received and installed and it looks like the leak is gone. I hope to restart the experiment in 2-3 hours after I re-assemble the system. You can look for the ongoing data and pictures at this URL:"
