The oxidation kinetics of molybdenum disilicide over the temperature interval, 1328 to 1765° K, has been studied using a thermal conductivity method. The rates of oxidation were found to follow a parabolic relationship once a protective coating was formed. From the temperature dependence of the parabolic rate constants, an activation energy of 20 kcal/mole was obtained.
