Experimental investigations into the thermodynamic properties of halogens in silicate melts

Abstract:

The aim of this thesis is to understand the chemical behaviour of halogens in silicate melts by experimentally determining their thermodynamic activities. This includes defining how halogens become incorporated into a melt and what influences chlorine's solubility and bonding behaviour in silicate melts.

A halogen buffer has been developed using Ag/AgCl, in which Ag (as oxide) is virtually insoluble in silicate melt under the conditions of the experiment. The buffer controls the fu...
