Abstract:

PHASE I OF THIS EFFORT PROPOSES TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING THE COMPUTATIONAL CHEMISTRY DATABASE SYSTEM FOR IDENTIFYING SUITABLE FIRE-SUPPRESSION ALTERNATIVES. DATA ON THE PHYSICAL, CHEMICAL, STRUCTURAL, THERMODYNAMIC, AND FIRE-SUPPRESSION PROPERTIES ON AS MANY COMPOUNDS AS POSSIBLE WILL BE ADDED TO THE DATABASE. THE COMPUTATIONAL CHEMISTRY DATABASE SYSTEM WILL THEN BE USED TO IDENTIFY CANDIDATE COMPOUNDS WITH IMPROVED FIRE-SUPPRESSION PROPERTIES OVER PREVIOUS MOLECULES. THE FIRE-SUPPRESSION PROPERTIES OF THE CANDIDATE COMPOUNDS WILL BE EXPERIMENTALLY VERIFIED AND ADDED TO THE DATABASE, EXPANDING AND IMPROVING IT. ANTICIPATED BENEFITS/POTENTIAL COMMERICAL APPLICATIONS - SINCE ELIMINATING THE USE OF OZONE-DAMAGING COMPOUNDS IS CALLED FOR IN THE MONTREAL PROTOCOL, THIS METHOD OF FINDING ALTERNATIVE COMPOUNDS COULD BE USED BY THE COMMERCIAL SECTOR FOR DEVELOPING REFRIGERANT ALTERNATIVES AND SOLVENT ALTERNATIVES AS WELL AS FIRE-SUPPRESSION ALTERNATIVES.
