Phase transformation studies on pure and doped strontium carbonate

  • C Rama Mohan Rao
  • P N Mehrotra


The orthorhombic-hexagonal transformation of strontium carbonate is a reversible reconstructive transformation. Cationic impurities like K+, Ca2+, Ba2+, Cd2+, Y3+, La3+, Nd3+, Sm3+, Gd3+, Dy3+, Ho3+, Bi3+, Zr4+ doped in pure strontium carbonate affect the kinetics and energetics of the transformation.
