Pagination or Media Count:
The elements of the first transition series form oxides which display a wide variety of defect-related phenomena such as non-stoichiometry and diffusion. Many of these oxides have been studied extensively in recent years partly because of their intrinsic interest and partly because they are important technologically e.g. in high temperature oxidation, catalysis etc.. In this paper the current appreciation of diffusion processes in some of these oxides is reviewed in terms of the defects which are believed to be responsible for diffusion and their energies of formation, migration and interaction. The specific materials considered are Titanium dioxide Chromium oxide, Manganese oxide, Ferric oxide, Cobalt oxide, Nickel oxide, Copper oxide. Keywords Great Britain.
