High Temperature Vaporization Chemistry in the Gold-chlorine System Including Formation of Vapor Complex Species of Gold and Silver With Copper and Iron.
Met Trans B December 1978 1978 Dec; 9B:501-508
Thermodynamic properties of the vaporization reactions in the gold- chlorine system have been investigated in the temperature ranges of 580 to 649 k and 882 to 1,107 k. The experimental technique consisted of classical transpiration vapor pressure measurement and analysis with a newly developed flow reactor-mass spectrometer system, which connects a high-temperature, ambient pressure reactor to a mass spectrometer. Metallic gold reacts with chlorine gas at temperatures above 750 k, forming the vapor species au2cl2(g).
