The Kinetics of the Reaction between Magnesium Oxide and Iron (III) Oxide: The Effect of Sizes of Particles
Many authors have accounted for the rates of reactions similar to those studied here in terms of various equations based on physical models1–5, but not always with great success. One study carried out with very fine powders (<1 μm across) yielded an empirical linear relationship between the amount reacted and the log of time6.
