The kinetics and equilibria of the gold-chlorine system.
J Less-Common Met 1970 Nov; 22(3):327-339
The kinetics and vapor-solid equilibria of the gold-chlorine system have been studied between 70 and 800 deg C at chlorine pressures ranging from 76 to 760 torr. Four kinetic regions, differentiated by separate controlling mechanisms, were found. Kinetic factors were correlated with equilibria involving (1) the vapor pressure of Au2Cl6, (2) chlorine and Au2Cl6 vapor in equilibrium with Au2Cl2, (3) chlorine and Au2Cl6 vapor over gold, and (4) chlorine and Au2Cl2 vapor over gold.
