Kittyhawk pilot : wing commander J.F. (Stocky) Edwards by J. P. A. Michel Lavigne( Book )

3 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the true inspirational story of James "Stocky" Edwards, Canada's top living fighter pilot. The story begins in Battleford, Saskatchewan, where Stocky grew up. During his childhood, shooting partridge, and working hard, Stocky learned the lessons that would serve him well during the Desert War. The story progresses through Stocky's training and then his posting overseas to the Desert War where he flew the P-40 Kittyhawk. This is the incredible story of a young Canadian who goes to war and becomes a superior pilot and leader of men. This book was written by Michel Lavigne and Stocky Edwards and first published in print in 1983

In situ characterization of adsorbed species on methanol synthesis catalysts by FT-IR spectroscopy by James F Edwards( )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Transmission infrared spectroscopy was used to characterize adsorbed species on methanol synthesis catalysts during reaction conditions. A copper carbonyl, bidentate formate, and methoxy species were identified as stable surface groups. An adsorbed formaldehyde species was unstable at the reaction temperature, but could be observed on the catalyst surface at the beginning of the reaction. Surface species were very similar for feed mixtures of (1) carbon monoxide and hydrogen, (2) carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen, and (3) formic acid and hydrogen. The role of copper in methanol synthesis catalysts was to increase the adsorption of carbon monoxide to form a linear carbonyl species. This carbonyl promoted the hydrogenation of formate groups. The formate species was adsorbed on a zinc site (Zn(,(beta))) different from the zinc site (Zn(,(gamma))) on which formaldehyde and methoxy groups were adsorbed. The rate-determining step in methanol synthesis was determined to be the reaction of hydrogen from a hydroxyl species adsorbed on another zinc site (Zn(,(alpha))) with a methoxy group to yield methanol. It was established that at the experimental conditions;used in this study, the methanol synthesis reaction was far from equilibrium while the water-gas shift reaction was near equilibrium; ('1)DOE Report IS-T-1121.
