Abstract

Introductory experiments were carried out to see just which halogen methane derivatives, if any, produce heat changes when dissolved in liquid ammonia. There are indications given in the chemical literature to expect that certain of the halogen methanes should dissolve in liquid ammonia with the evolution or absorption of heat. This present research work involved investigation of such compounds as chloroform, carbon tetrachloride, bromoform, and also iodoform. Only introductory heat measurements were made. More work must be done to confirm and enlarge upon results presented here.
