CNG is made by compressing natural gas to less than one percent of the volume it occupies at standard atmospheric pressure. The use of natural gas reduces greenhouse gas emissions six to 11 percent, according to the U.S.
([dagger]) Some texts describe the extended range as conditions for which [t.sub.db] is greater than or equal to the normal boiling temperature at standard atmospheric pressure. This description only applies to standard atmospheric pressure (101.325 kPa [14.696 psia]).
PMAS's combination of materials and design allow it to spin samples at hundreds of thousands of RPM under pressures as high as 200 times standard atmospheric pressure. By spinning the sample at an angle of 57.4 degrees with respect to NMR's main magnetic field (the magic angle), PMAS supports analysis of solids, liquids, gasses or mixtures at temperatures up to 100 C.
