Abstract

Iron powders were oxidized in NaOH solutions of 5-25 mol kg-1 at 403-563 K and 5 MPa of oxygen partial pressure. Various types and morphologies of iron compounds such as fine particles of Fe3O4, micaceous α-Fe2O3, and coagulated particles of α-NaFeO2 were formed depending on the experimental conditions. The observed critical concentrations of NaOH above which α-NaFeO2 was formed was in good agreement with those thermodynamically calculated for the hydrolysis equilibrium of α-NaFeO2.
