YBaCo4O7 compound is capable to intake and release a large amount of oxygen in the temperature range of 200–400°C. In the present
study, the effect of Zn, Ga and Fe substitution for Co on the oxygen adsorption/desorption properties of YBaCo4O7 were investigated by thermogravimetry (TG) method. Due to fixed oxidation state of Zn2+ ions, the substitution of Zn2+ for Co2+ suppresses the oxygen adsorption of YBaCo4−xZnxO7. The substitution of Ga3+ for Co3+ also decreases the oxygen absorption capacity of YBaCo4−xGaxO7. This can be explained by the strong affinity of Ga3+ ions towards the GaO4 tetrahedron. Compared with Zn- and Ga-substituted samples, the drop of oxygen adsorption capacity is smallest for Fe-substituted
samples because of the similar changeability of oxidation states of Co and Fe ions.

The back-titration of atomic oxygen chemisorbed on metallic copper using carbon monoxide is investigated by microcalorimetry.
Results from simulations based on a microkinetic model of the back-titration are used for processing of microcalorimetric
data. In addition, surface oxidation of copper by nitrous oxide is investigated by microcalorimetry. The results are compared
with results obtained by nitrous oxide reactive frontal chromatography and by static oxygen adsorption studied by microcalorimetry.
The heat of adsorption of nitrous oxide on copper amounts to 304 kJ mol−1, and the heat of adsorption of carbon monoxide on surfaceoxidized copper is in the range from 120 to 70 kJ mol−1.

The influence of pH shift and NaCl salting on the heat production, oxygen adsorption, and oxygen evolution rates of the unicellular green halotolerant microalga Dunaliella maritima and the freshwater microalga Chlorella vulgaris were investigated. In the growth process of both microalgae the alkalization of their culture medium was observed. And simultaneously it was shown that at increasing NaCl salting of cultural medium its acidification occurs. At alkalization and acidification of Chlorella medium the increase of heat production and respiration rates were observed. At alkalization and acidification of Dunaliella culture the adverse effect of decreasing heat production rate was observed. Acidification of culture medium of both algae led to short-term and sharp increase of photosynthesis measured by polarography and photomicrocalorimeter.
