A method for controlling alkali-metal oxide activities in one-atmosphere experiments and its application to measuring the relative activity coefficients of NaO0.5 in silicate melts
The activity of alkali metal oxides can be controlled in one-atmosphere wire-loop experiments at high temperature by suspending a crucible containing alkali silicate melt beneath the samples. The method has been applied to measuring the activity coefficient of NaO0.5 in a series of CMAS-NaO0.5 melts relative to that in the anorthite-diopside eutectic composition at 1400 °C, using a reservoir of NaO0.5-SiO2 melt. The results show that this relative activity coefficient decreases strongly with...[Show more]
