 1699.    ---------------.  [KAWAKITA, K.]  Chemisorption of Carbon Dioxide by Reduced Iron.  III.  Thermodynamic Consideration of the Chemisorption.  Rev. Phys. Chem. Japan, vol. 13, 1939, pp. 87-95; chem. Abs., vol. 33, 1939, p. 9084.

        Free-energy equations are derived for the possible reactions in the chemisorption of CO2 by reduced Fe, and the free-energy values are calculated for 360.  CO as an intermediate product is identified by its reduction of PdCL2 solution.  Fe3O4 is identified as a product.  These facts and the free-energy values suggests that the chemisorption consists of the following reactions:  Fe+CO2=FeO+CO, 3FeO+CO2=Fe3O4+CO, 3Fe+4CO2=Fe3O4+4CO.2CO=C+CO2.  The apparent reaction of the system becomes 3Fe+2CO2=Fe3O4+2C.
