Oxidation state of chromium in molten slags

  title={Oxidation state of chromium in molten slags},
  author={Yunyun Xiao and Marcel Reuter and L. Holappa}
To better understand chromium behaviour in slags under low oxygen potential, it is essential to clarify the existing form of chromium in slags. In an earlier work by the authors, oxidation state of chromium in CaO-SiO2-CrOx slags was studied. However, due to the complications in the experiments and the analysis, the results were scattered. It was found that divalent and trivalent chromium co-exists in the slags related to ferrochromium and stainless steel production. The ratio of divalent to… CONTINUE READING
