Abstract

The phase transitions of RbNO3 and the binary phase diagram of (Cs,Rb)NO3 were investigated at atmospheric pressure, using simultaneous direct and differential thermal analysis, μDTA and DSC techniques. A fourth phase transition of RbNO3 has been observed at temperature near the melting point. The phase diagram of this system is characterised by a eutectic, two eutectoid and an azeotropic-like invariants. Three limited solid solutions and two continuous solid solutions have been detected at low temperature.
