Researchers from University of London, Imperial College discuss findings in electrochemical research
April 16th, 2010
"To date, the characterization of the reduction pathway for the Fray Farthing Chen (FFC) Cambridge process has been achieved through ex situ studies, leading to some ambiguities. This study employs a synchrotron X-ray diffraction technique to monitor in situ the FFC reduction of NiTiO3 to NiTi, yielding an unmatched level of detail on the electrochemical and chemical reactions involved," investigators in London, the United Kingdom report.
"The reduction pathway consists of rapid initial reduction of NiTiO3 to form CaTiO3 and Ni, then the transformation of Ni to Ni3Ti, and finally the consumption of CaTiO3 and Ni3Ti to produce NiTi. The phases observed agree with...
