Kinetic Aspects of Some Reactions between Metals and Gaseous Carbon Disulphide
The problem of corrosion of metals by sulphur-containing gases has led for several years researchers to study on a theoretical basis the mechanisms of the phenomena which occur during this kind of reaction. But, if a lot of research has been carried out with hydrogen sulphide or sulphur vapour, there is no systematic study of corrosion by gaseous carbon disulphide, CS2. This compound, a product of big industry which possesses significant vapour pressure at room temperature, seems however very suitable for a theoretical study of the sulphidation of metals. That is the major reason why we have undertaken the study of its behaviour with metals, firstly from a qualitative point of view (thermodynamic diagrams and resulting products), secondly from a quantitative one (kinetics of sulphuration, influence of temperature and pressure).
