The effect of vibration grinding on the DTA curves of montmorillonite isolated from the most important locality of bentonite
in the Slovak Republic (Jelšovy potok, Middle Slovakia) was studied in the temperature range 20–1500°C. Interpretation is
offered for 6 endothermic and 3 exothermic peaks. vibration grinding modified the course of dehydration of the mineral, suppresses
the “dehydroxylation’ peak at 700°C, enables the crystallization of high-temperature quartz, cristobalite and cordierite at
lower temperatures in comparison with unground natural montmorillonite. Vibration griding slows down the crystallization of
mullite which—unlike quartz, cristobalite and cordierite—does not belong to high-temperature phases of Cheto-montmorillonite.
The order in which these high-temperature phases occur is not influenced by vibration grinding.

The phase diagram of the system Ag4SSe–As2Se3
is studied by means of X-ray diffraction, differential thermal analyses and
measurements of the microhardness and the density of the materials. The unit-cell
parameters of the intermediate phases 3Ag4SSeAs2Se3
(phase A) and Ag4SSe2As2Se3
(phase B) are determined as follows for phase A: a=4.495
, b=3.990 , c=4.042
, α=89.05, β=108.98, γ=92.93; for phase
B: a=4.463 , b=4.136
, c=3.752 , α=118.60,
β=104.46, γ=83.14. The phase 3Ag4SSeAs2Se3
have a polymorphic transition α↔β consequently at 105 and 120C.
The phase A melts incongruently at 390C and phase B congruently at the

The phase diagram of the system Ag4SSe-SnTe is studied by means of X-ray diffraction, differential thermal and metallographic analyses and measurements of the microhardness and the density of the material. This diagram is divided into two eutectic-type subdiagrams by the composition Ag4SSe·2SnTe. The unit-cell parameters of the intermediate phases 3Ag4SSe·SnTe (phase A) and -Ag4SSe·2SnTe (phase B) are determined as follows: for phase A: a=0.7851 nm, b=0.7196 nm, c=0.6296 nm, =101.32°, =85.90°, =111.36°; for phase B: a=0.3662 nm, b=0.3303 nm, c=0.3343 nm, =90.74°, =108.94°, =91.91°. The phase Ag4SSe·2SnTe melts congruently at 615°C and a polymorphic transition of the phase takes place at T - =110°C.

The solid solution crystals, La1–xNdxGaO3 and La1–xPrxGaO3 have been studied by differential scanning calorimetry method; the crystals exhibit the first order phase transition, the
temperature of the transition linearly increases with the concentration of Pr or Nd. The structure of the crystals has been
determined by X-ray diffraction. The correlation between the phase transition temperature and crystalline structure at the
temperature of the phase transition in both solid solution families is discussed.
Fly ash is the ash precipitated from the exhaust fumes of coal-fired power stations. It consists mainly of active silica and
alumina, with large amounts of glass. The aim of this work was to study the pozzolanic activity of fly ash with lime by means
of DTA as a function of the lime content and the curing time. The curves revealed that the rate of hydration, as indicated
by the residual lime and hydrated compounds, increases with increasing lime content and curing time. It is concluded that
fly ash can be used as a blending material in pozzolanic cement.
The decomposition behaviour of dolomite samples has been carried out by simultaneous DTA-TG experiments. Dolomite samples
could be classified broadly into two categories as regular and iron-bearing dolomites based on DTA decomposition temperatures.
The mass% FeO of all the dolomite samples was identified by DTA and the results are confirmed by atomic absorption spectrophotometer

The processes of nucleation of Li2O-Al2O3-SiO2 glasses with TiO2 and TiO2+ZrO2 as nucleating agents were discussed. The DTA peak temperature and DTA peak height shown a strong dependence on the nucleation
temperature in the glass with TiO2, while in the glass with TiO2+ZrO2 this tendency was small. The optimum nucleation temperatures were 745 and 760°C for two glasses. It suggested that with TiO2+ZrO2 as nucleating agents, the crystallization had lower sensitivity for nucleation temperature, and the glass had higher nucleation
efficiency than with TiO2.
