Abstract

Electron diffraction and differential thermal analysis studies have shown that the formation of metastable phases in antimony on liquid-quenching bythe “gun” technique is dependent on the rupture pressure of the “gun”. The transformation temperatures, associated heats of transformation, and transformation kinetics of these metastable phases are reported.
