Abstract : The objective of the program is to provide thermodynamic data for species which are potentially important combustion products of advanced chemical rockets and for related species. Enthalpy and entropy data are obtained from equilibrium measurements made by torsion-free evaporation and torsion-effusion techniques and by high temperature mass spectrometry. Vapor pressure data for lithium were obtained and, from these measurements the heat of vaporization of lithium was found to be 38.3 plus or minus .4 Kcal/mole. The beam modulation modification for the mass spectrometer was found to operate very well.
