The Slow Combustion of Acetylene
Proceedings of the Royal Society A
In 1905 one of us in conjunction with Andrew published the results of extensive experiments upon the combustion of acetylene which showed th a t when a 2C2H 2 + 0 2 or C2H 2 + 0 2 mixture was sealed up in borosilicate glass bulbs at atmospheric pressure and afterwards heated, reaction set in at 250°, or even at a somewhat lower temperature, and proceeded rapidly at 300°. Explosive combustion set in at about 350°, the ignition point being raised either by reducing the initial pressure or bydoi:10.1098/rspa.1937.0198 fatcat:lvbaz5e7sjanrcirchuj6nyhsi
