### Are there chemicals that absorb and release upon heating oxygen more efficiently than potassium oxide?

$\ce{K2O}$ absorbs oxygen forming $\ce{K2O2},$ which decomposes to $\ce{K2O}$ and $\ce{O2}$ at 500 °C. This means that $\ce{K2O}$ can absorb up to 17% its mass of oxygen. Are there other substances ...

### What is the significant figures in error percent?

As an example, the value I got was $\pu{0.254 g}$ and the accepted value is $\pu{0.294 g}$. I'm trying to calculate the percent error. $0.254 - 0.294 = -0.04$ (error) \$-0.04/0.294 = -0.1360544... \...

### Why can't calorimetry be used to measure fast reactions?

As my previous post was a bit unclear and unspecific, I am reformulating it. First of all this is a question that I had while reading some concepts my book introduces, so this isn't a homework ...

### Increase of peak intensity in case of hydrogen bonding

Typical motif in case of hydrogen bonds is charge transfer from electron rich acceptor Y to (usually) anti-bonding X-H σ* orbital. If so, the X-H bonding distance increases, bond weakens, stretching ...

### Haworth's research of glucose

Firstly haworth used CH3I/Ag2O with glucose which replaced 5 H by CH3 forming a acetal which locked the anomer and stopped the equilibirium of ring chain tautomerism. Under dilute acidic conditions ...

### Which DFT functional is best for predicting macroscopic properties of molecular liquids?

Which DFT functional (KS-DFT, to be more specific) performs best at predicting macroscopic properties (density, surface tension, boiling point, relative permittivity etc.) of molecular liquids (...
