Statistical Thermodynamics of Non-Stoichiometric Oxides
Some problems of statistical thermodynamics applied to non-stoichiometric oxides are examined: Two typical oxides, titanium monoxide and ceria, respectively metallic and ionic oxides, are used to discuss the role of short range and of long range interactions. A particular attention is paid to coulombic interactions which cannot be neglected in a number of ionic compounds. The validity of the use of the ideal mass action law as a tool of investigation is also discussed.
