IN earlier work1 the rate of oxidation of the 110 faces of zinc sulphide was measured by use of a thermobalance. Below 830° C. the rate was found to be ‘chemically controlled’, being an exponential function of temperature and largely independent of the thickness of the product layer of zinc oxide. Above 830° C. there were indications of the onset of a ‘diffusion control’, depending on the diffusion of the oxygen up to the zinc sulphide interface through the layer of porous oxide.
