Determination of the surface area of mercuric oxide by isotope exchange and other methods

  • Y. K. Rao
  • B. Rangamannar


The specific surface area of mercuric oxide has been measured by heterogeneous isotope exchange, gas adsorption, air-permeability and microscopic methods. Values obtained by the four methods were compared and explanations given for the observed differences.
