Abstract : Recent studies of the solubility reactions of the oxides of A1, Cr, Ni, Co, Y, and Mn are reviewed. The oxides of each of these metals dissolve by distinctly different reactions in the acid and basic regimes. For each of the oxides, the solubility is a minimum between the two regimes. Therefore the solution of a protective oxide is highly dependent on the melt acidity. For Na2SO4, the acidity is controlled by the composition (SO2 and SO3) of the gas phase.
