Abstract : ON THE BASIS OF THE DATA AVAILABLE ON THE THERMODYNAMIC PROPERTIES OF ALKALI METALS AND VAPOR PHASES, A METHOD WAS DEVELOPED FOR CALCULATING THEIR THERMODYNAMIC FUNCTIONS. An analysis is made of the effect of dimerization in the vapor of alkali metals and a method is sho n for taking into account this effect when calculating the enthalpy, entropy, and pressure of saturated vapor. An is-diagram (enthalpy-enthropy diagram) is shown for alkali metals. (Author)
