Heat capacities and latent heats of LiNO3, NaNO3, and KNO3

  • Y. Takahashi
  • R. Sakamoto
  • M. Kamimoto


Enthalpies of fusion and transition together with heat capacities in both solid and liquid phases have been measured on LiNO3, NaNO3, and KNO3 with a high accuracy by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Polynomial expressions of heat capacities are given.

Key words

differential scanning calorimetry enthalpy of fusion enthalpy of transition heat capacity KNO3 LiNO3 NaNO3
