Measurements of Enthalpies of Sublimation: The Importance of Correlating Thermodynamic Data Obtained from Indirect Methods

  • Manuel João S. Monte
Part of the NATO Science Series book series (ASIC, volume 535)


Empirical correlations, between the enthalpy of sublimation and the temperature at which the vapour pressure is 0.5 Pa, derived from results obtained through effusion techniques of several hundreds of compounds are presented. Some details of the Knudsen effusion method are also discussed.
