Determination of Melting Entropy by the Measurement of the Volume Change of Melting at High Pressure

  • P. W. Mirwald


The determination of phase transitions at high pressures and high temperatures represents an area of major interest in highpressure research. To date such investigations have been mostly confined to locating the p-T coordinates of the phase boundary studied. Quantitative assessments of changes in the properties of State associated with the transition have been very rare.
