Abstract

The chlorination kinetics of alkali-added (K and Li) tungsten trioxide were studied by thermogravimetry, using gaseous CCl4 as chlorinating agent. The reactivity of the modified samples was compared to the results on the chlorination of pure WO3. Similar apparent activation energies were found for the pure and alkali-added samples. However, potassium additive resulted in a strong decrease of the initial reaction rate, while surface lithium has no influence on it. During the chlorination a continuous decrease of the linear reaction rate was observed for both samples, which was explained by retarding effects of surface by-products and alkali additives. For describing the isothermal TG curves an appropriate kinetic model, based on the monotonously increasing inhibition of these species was assumed. The curve calculated with this model fits well to the experimental results.
