Abstract

"The oxygen pressure over solid molybdenum dioxide in equilibrium with liquid molybdenum oxide was determined by transpiration and solid electrolytic galvanic cell methods at 950ºC and 900º, 950º and 1000ºC respectively. The results were compared to those expected from thermodynamic data on the Mo-O system. Possible reactions between MoO₂ and SiO₂ were studied at different oxygen pressures up to 1550ºC. No compound formation or solid solution between MoO₂ and SiO₂ was detected by x-ray diffraction techniques. The phase boundary between MoO₂ and liquid molybdenum oxide was checked by microscopic examination of quenched samples. Equilibration runs were carried out in silica and platinum capsules"--Abstract, page ii.
