Cohesion and Structure of Surfaces

Up to now fifteen years there was a dramatic raise within the variety of varied surfaces whose buildings were decided experimentally. for instance, while in 1979 there have been in basic terms 25 recorded adsorption constructions, so far there are greater than 250. This quantity is consequently a well timed evaluate of the state of the art during this dynamic box.

The mass spectra had one peak at m/e = 254, corresponding to hexadec-l-enyl methyl ether, and one at m/e = Μ — 32, possibly a hydrocarbon formed by loss of methanol from the ether. The hexadec-l-enyl methyl ether was easily hydrolyzed to yield hexadecanal and hydrogenated to form hexadecyl methyl ether. As noted by Stein and Slawson (1966), the difficulties associated with the GLC of dimethyl acetals can be circumvented by qualitative and quantita­ tive calibrations of the GLC columns, together with some attempt to prove that the substance emerging from the column is the same as that placed on it.
