Solubility of tetramethylammonium superoxide [(CH3)4N]O2 in liquid ammonia

  • 46 Accesses


  1. 1.

    The solubility in the system [(CH3)4N]O2-NH3 was studied in a temperature interval of −35 °–−74°. The system is characterized by the presence of a simple eutectic at −79 ° at a concentration of ∼0.4 g of tetramethylammonium Superoxide per 100 g of liquid ammonia.

  2. 2.

    The solubility of tetramethylammonium Superoxide is in the vicinity of the boiling point of ammonia and amounts to ∼7g/100 g of NH3 at −35°.
