Thermal decomposition of CuS to Cu1.8S.
Metall Trans 1971 Feb; 2(2):605-606
The conversion of covellite to digenite in the temperature range 310 deg. to 338 deg. C does not follow the unreacted core model. The observed linear kinetic curves suggest that the rate-controlling step occurs at the outermost constant area interface between covellite and the reacting gases.
