Heterogeneous oxidation of zinc vapor by steam and mixtures of steam and carbon dioxide
Chemical Engineering Science
The kinetics of the heterogeneous oxidation of zinc vapor by water vapor were measured in a tube flow reactor for temperatures from 800 to 1100 K, zinc vapor partial pressures up to 0.39 atm, and water vapor partial pressures up to 1.0 atm. The results extend the prior data for oxidation of zinc by water vapor from zinc partial pressures on the order of 0.01 atm to higher values appropriate for fuel production via the Zn/ZnO thermochemical cycle.
