    • Abstract

       

      The oxidation kinetics of CuFeO2 in Cu-Fe-O system have been studied between temperature range 500° C and 900° C in an ambient atmosphere containing constant oxygen partial pressure in the flowing nitrogen. Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) technique was used as the main tool. The oxidation rate was found to decrease and the activation energy calculated from the oxidation rate constants for various composition increased from 8 to 45 k cal/mole on increasing the Fe2O3 content in the system. The value of exponentn in Avrami’s equation=1 − exp (−ktn) also increased from 1·3 to 2·3. The microstructural changes associated with the oxidation have been studied using optical microscopy and correlated with results obtained from thermogravimetric analysis.
