Thermal decomposition of stichtite
The mineral stitchtite was synthesised and its thermal decomposition measured using thermogravimetry coupled to an evolved gas mass spectrometer. Mass loss steps were observed at 52, 294, 550 and 670 °C attributed to dehydration, dehydroxylation and loss of carbonate. The loss of carbonate occurred at higher temperatures than dehydroxylation.
