Heat effects for the addition of Co in bulk and nanosized forms into the liquid Sn-3.8Ag-0.7Cu alloy were studied using drop calorimetry at four temperatures between 673 and 1173 K. Significant differences in the heat effects between nano and bulk Co additions were observed. The considerably more exothermic values of the measured enthalpy for nano Co(More)
Cd vapor pressures were determined over Cd– Nd samples by an isopiestic method. The measurements were carried out in the temperature range from about 690 to 1200 K and over a composition range between 48 and 92 at % Cd. From the vapor pressures, thermodynamic activities of Cd were derived for all samples at their respective sample temperatures, and partial(More)
The present research focused on the synthesis of Ni and Ni-Sn nanoparticles via a chemical reduction method using hydrazine hydrate. The syntheses were performed applying highly purified water or diethylene glycol as solvent. The produced nanoparticles were characterized by scanning electron microscopy and powder X-ray diffraction. The as-synthesized Ni-Sn(More)
