Abstract

This paper is a dissertation on a study of the determination of the Gibbs free energy of formation of plutonium chloride using potentiometric measurements obtained from a galvanic cell of the type,

Ta, Pu(1)/ PuCl3-KCl(1,N1)/ Cl2(g), C.

The terminals of the two electrodes, tantalum and graphite, have been included in the representation inasmuch as their effects must be taken into consideration in the design of the cell; however, in order that the desired virtual cell reaction be realized, it is necessary that these terminals be chemically inert.
