2464. ---------------. [NIENBURG, -----.] [Cracking of High Molecular Paraffin and Oxidation Gatsch.] FIAT Reel R-20, frames 7600-7614, Mar. 9, 1942; PB 73,564.
Differences between corresponding fractions of oxidation products obtained either from high-molecular paraffin or from medium-pressure paraffins are discussed and shown in tables. The fraction derived from the high-molecular paraffin is considerably inferior. It is thought that structural change, such as cyclization, occurs which is inherent in the material itself or which takes place during the cracking process.
