  • The high-temperature form of pentlandite (Fe4.5Ni4.5S8) was found to be stable between 584 6 3 and 865 6 3 8C, breaking down into monosulfide solid solution and liquid at the later temperature. The phase is unquenchable and always displays the X-ray pattern of pentlandite (low form) at room temperature. High-temperature X-ray diffraction demonstrated that the high form has a primitive cubic cell with a 5 5.189 A ˚ (620 8C) corresponding to a/2 of pentlandite. The high-low inversion is… CONTINUE READING
