Effects of Chlorine on Aluminum Refining: A Review and an Ab Initio Molecular Dynamics Study

Abstract:

Article Preview

A comprehensive introduction of current aluminum refining technology is reviewed in this work especially the effects of chlorine on refining process is discussed. The mechanism of chlorine on improving hydrogen diffusion has been studied by ab initio molecular dynamics calculations and we obtain the diffusivity of hydrogen in liquid aluminum which is in agreement with the experimental data. It can be concluded that the diffusion of hydrogen in aluminum melts can be enhanced on the presence of chlorine.
