Relative Enthalpies of Ni3s2.
MISSING :8 pages
The Bureau of Mines determined the enthalpies of ni3s2 relative to 298.15 K to provide new thermodynamic data for advancement of mineral science and technology. Enthalpies were measured with a copper-block calorimeter from 298.15 to 1,197 k. A solid-solid transition was found at 834 +/- 1 k, with an isothermal heat absorption of 13.32 Kcal/mol. The temperature of this solid-solid transition was accurately measured by differential scanning calorimetry. Because ni3s2 does not melt congruently, the heat of fusion of 4.70 Kcal/mol was obtained by extrapolation of enthalpy measurements from the solid and liquid phases to approximately 1,064 k. Tabulated values are given for the relative standard enthalpy, heat capacity, entropy, and Gibbs energy function between 298.15 And 1,800 k. Enthalpies are also given in equation form and combined with data from the literature to derive values of standard enthalpies of formation and Gibbs energies of formation. Similar calculations were made for the reaction of cystalline and liquid nickel with gaseous diatomic sulfur for ni3s2(c,1).
