Temperature: 800C - 1100C

Description:Strontium carbonate decomposition
Type:State Change


Some data sheets (and Wikipedia) indicate that decomposition occurs at 1100C, the same as the melting temperature. Technical references are more specific, saying that decomposition can occur earlier in a purely oxidizing atmosphere.

  • (Materials) Strontium Carbonate - SrCO3 or SrO.CO2


  • (Temperatures) Decarbonation (200C-1000C)

    A wide range of carbonates are used in ceramics and each of these has its own thermal history. Within that is a range where they decompose to give off...
