Abstract
A NEW CLASS OF TRASITION METAL COMPLEXES FOR THE REVERSIBLE BINDING OF OXGEN IS BEING DEVISED. THE OBJECT MATERIALS WILLOFFER LOW COST, HIGH STABILITY, AND RAPID ABSORPTION AND DESORPTION OF OXGEN AT OR NEAR THE AMBIENT TEMPERATURE. A PRESSURE SWING DEVICE USING THESE MATERIALS IS EXPECTED TO PRODUCE OXYGEN OF EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH PURITY (99%), AND TO BEESPECIALLY RUGGED. PRIMARY APPLICATIONS WILL BE TO PROVIDE BREATHING OXYGEN ON HIGH FLYING AIRCRAFT, AND FOR WELDING AND METAL CUTTING. THE POTENTIAL COMMERCIAL APPLICATION AS DISCEIBED BY THE AWARDEE: RESEARCH WILL LEAD TOTHE PRODUCTION OF PURE OXYGEN.POTENTIAL MARKETS INCLUDE OXYGEN FOR WELDING, WASTE WATER TREATMENT, HIGH FLYING AIRCRAFT, AND MEDICAL USE.
