Abstract : This patent discloses a process for producing improved chemical laser absorbent materials by precipitating the chemical laser absorbent materials of metal from liquid anhydrous ammonia at very low temperature to produce an absorbent material, that has a high surface area and, when desired, to deposit the chemical absorbent material on a substrate material in the process of precipitating the absorbent material from the liquid ammonia. The chemical metal absorbent material is adapted for containment of the effluent gases from a chemical laser and the substrate when used absorbs the heat of reaction.
