Chemical Transport Reactions focuses on the processes and reactions involved in the transport of solid or liquid substances to form vapor phase reaction products.
The publication first offers information on experimental and theoretical principles and the transport of solid substances and its special applications. Discussions focus on calculation of the transport effect of heterogeneous equilibria for a gas motion between equilibrium spaces; transport effect and the thermodynamic quantities of the transport reaction; separation and purification of substances by means of material transport; and crystalline substances with homogeneous regions. The text then elaborates on the reaction process in the gas phase and chemical transport processes as an aid in preparative chemistry.
The manuscript ponders on the use of transport experiments in the determination of thermodynamic values, including determination of quantities transported in the diffusion tube, test of reversibility, and inversion of transport direction.
The book is a vital reference for readers interested in chemical transport reactions.
