The effect of partial replacement of K+ by Ag+ in the mixed system of KNO3 and AgNO3 during a set of DSC heating cycles was studied by means of a modern computerized DSC system. Thermal analysis was performed in the vicinity of the phase transition II → I for pure KNO3. The results revealed a large change in enthalpy and the phase transition temperature close to the morphotropic boundary x=0.5–0.6. At this boundary, the transformation enthalpy reached the maximum value of ∼101 J g−1. On the basis of the data obtained from this accurate thermal analysis work, a model is suggested for the energy barrier of rotation of the nitrate ion in the mixed nitrate system.
