2013 Combustion Art Competition

Event Date: June 13, 2013
Maurice J. Zucrow Labs wins Honorable Mention at The Combustion Institute - 2013 Combustion Art Competition

Faculty and students from the Maurice J. Zucrow Laboratories received an Honorable Mention in the 2013 Combustion Art Competition from The Combustion Institute.

 “Hypergolic Ignition of Various Compounds with Nitric Acid” shows the hypergolic ignition of a solid borane compound with concentrated nitric acid. Reaction is completed within 10 ms of contact. The green color indicates the presence of boron. The borane compound is a powder (particles of which are visible close to the ignition site). It was ignited with a drop of white fuming nitric acid.

Congratulations to Prof. Stephen Heister, Prof. Tim Pourpoint, Prof. Steven Son, Mark Pfeil, Jacob Dennis, and P. Ramachandran
