The Effect of the Microstructure on Oxidation of Sulfide-Metal Alloys of Copper and Nickel
The methods of thermal, thermogravimetric, mass spectrometric and high-temperature X-ray analysis have been used to determine the chemism of the processes involving the oxidation of a sulfide-metal copper-nickel alloy during continuous heating to 1190 K in an air flow. It has been found that the fineness of particles, the size of the sulfide phases in these particles, and the phase composition influence the phase transformation temperatures, as well as the kinetics and the sequence of the oxidation processes.
