AbstractThe author investigated a number of quaternary and ternary explosion regions of gas (gas and vapour) mixtures in which ethylene and air throughout were two of the components. These gases were combined in the quaternary systems with hydrogen and carbon monoxide, hydrogen and carbon dioxide, nitrogen and carbon dioxide; in the ternary systems with vapours of ethylene chloride, ethylene bromide and n‐butyl bromide. It is considered whether in the limit mixtures of these systems Le Chatelier's law and formula was satisfied; in connection with this consideration the result of the investigations is summarized in graphs and tables. A closed explosion region was found in the system C2H4‐air‐H2‐CO2. Moreover a description is given of an apparatus in which a part of the experiments was carried out.
