DSC measurements were carried out for [Ni(H2O)6](ClO4)2 (sampleH) and [Ni(D2O)6](ClO4)2 (sampleD) in the temperature range 300–380 K. For both compounds two anomalies on the DSC curves were detected. The results for sampleH are compared to those previously obtained using adiabatic calorimetry method. For both compounds studied in this work the
high-temperature transition appears at the same temperature while the low-temperature one is shifted towards higher temperatures
in sampleD. Disorder connected with H2O or D2O groups is suggested in the intermediate phase between the low- and high-temperature transitions.

(at%) alloy with a lamellar structure (γ+α2)
was oxidised in air at 700, 800, 850 and 900°C in isothermal and thermal
cycling conditions. The reaction progress was followed by thermogravimetric
measurements. In isothermal conditions the oxidation kinetics followed approximately
a parabolic rate law and the rate constants ranged from about 10–12
kg2 m–4 s–1
at 700°C to 10–10 kg2
at 900°C. The oxide scales were built of Al2O3
and TiO2, the former being the main component of the
outermost layer. The oxidation behaviour of Ti–45.9Al–8Nb was
referred to a commercial titanium alloy, WT4 (Ti–6Al–1Mn), and
selected oxidation-resistant alloys.
