Thermodynamic Properties of Hedenbergite, a Complex Silicate of Calcium, Iron, Manganese, and Magnesium.
Bennington-KO; Beyer-RP; Brown-RR
This investigation of the thermodynamic properties of hedenbergite is one of a series being performed at the Bureau of Mines on slag- type pyroxenes, which include the pair acmite [(nafe3+)(si2o6)] and the nearly identical mineral aegirine. These pyroxene minerals readily assimilate manganese; consequently, this study contributes toward both the future investigation of some manganese minerals and the understanding of slag action in steelmaking.
