This report consists of two parts. Part I concerns the evaluation of stainless steel microwires and iron whiskers, as catalysts for ammonia synthesis. Several comparison catalysts were also evaluated for their catalytic ability for ammonia synthesis. The effect of potassium promotion on filament and comparison catalysts was determined.
Part II concerns the evaluation of iron whisker catalysts with regard to their catalytic ability for their hydroechlorination fo chloroalkanes. The chloroalkanes that were used in the hydroechlorination reactions were carbon tetrachlorida, chloroform, methylene chloride, and 1, 1, 1-trichloroethane. The hydroechlorination reactions were conducted in the gas phase, either in the prsence of an air atmosphere or a nitrogen atmosphere.
