Overview

High Temperature Experiments in Chemistry and Materials Science / Edition 1

Cutting edge high temperature materials include high temperaturesuperconductors, solid oxide fuel cells, thermoelectric materialsand ultrahigh temperature construction materials (including metals,cermets and ceramics) and have applications in key areas such asenergy, transportation and space technologies.

This book  introduces the concepts which underpin researchinto these critical materials including thermodynamics, kineticsand various physical, chemical and modelling techniques with afocus on practical “how to” methods and covers:

  • Introduction to High Temperature Research
  • Basic Design of High Temperature Furnaces
  • Temperature Measurement
  • Radiation Pyrometry
  • Refractory Materials in the Laboratory
  • Vacuum in Theory and Practice
  • The Design of Vacuum Furnaces and Thermobalances

With highly detailed instrument illustrations and an emphasis onthe control and measurement of the fundamental properties oftemperature, pressure and mass, High Temperature Experiments inChemistry and Materials Science provides a practical referenceon high temperature measurements, for researchers, advancedstudents and those working in academic or industriallaboratories.

  • Introduction to High Temperature Research
  • Basic Design of High Temperature Furnaces
  • Temperature Measurement
  • Radiation Pyrometry
  • Refractory Materials in the Laboratory
  • Vacuum in Theory and Practice
  • The Design of Vacuum Furnaces and Thermobalances
