Calorimetric Study of Natural Anapaite
The thermochemical study of natural hydrous calcium and iron phosphate, anapaite Ca2Fe(PO4)2 · 4H2O (Kerch iron ore deposit, Crimea, Russia), was carried out using high-temperature melt solution calorimetry with a Tian-Kalvet microcalorimeter. The enthalpy of formation of the mineral from elements was obtained to be Δ f Hel°(298.15 K) =–4812 ± 16 kJ/mol. The values of the standard entropy and the Gibbs energy of anapaite formation are S°(298.15 K) = 404.2 J/K mol and Δ f Gel°(298.15 K) =–4352 ± 16 kJ/mol, respectively.
