For kinetic studies accurate control of the temperature of the reaction flask is required. The reaction flask was placed in a furnace which was constructed in a large metal container A. Forty-four turns of #22 nichrome wire were wound about a 12"x4½" refractory cement core. To insure uniform distribution of heat, the flask was immersed in a bath of molten tin.
