Frost, Ray L. & Ding, Zhe (2003) Thermal activation of copper oxide based upon the copper hydrotalcites of the type CuxZn6-xCr2(OH)16(CO3).4H2O. Thermochimica Acta, 405(2), pp. 207-218.

A combination of DSC and high resolution DTG coupled to a gas evolution mass spectrometer has been used to study the thermal properties of a series of Cu/Zn hydrotalcites of formulae CuxZn6-xAl2(OH)16(CO3).4H2O where x varied from 6 to 0. The effect of increased Zn composition results in the increase of the endotherms and weight loss steps to higher temperatures. Evolved gas mass spectrometry shows that water is lost in a number of steps. The interlayer carbonate anion is lost simultaneously with hydroxyl units. The endotherms and differential weight loss steps were both cation and mole ratio dependent.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
