Thermodynamic study of gaseous CsBO$$_{2}$$ by Knudsen effusion mass spectrometry

Nakajima, Kunihisa; Takai, Toshihide; Furukawa, Tomohiro; Osaka, Masahiko

One of the main chemical forms of cesium in the gas phase during severe accidents of light water reactor is expected to be cesium metaborate, CsBO$$_{2}$$, by thermodynamic equilibrium calculation considering reaction with boron. But accuracy of the thermodynamic data of gaseous metaborate, CsBO$$_{2}$$(g), has been judged as poor quality. Thus, Knudsen effusion mass spectrometric measurement of CsBO$$_{2}$$ was carried out to obtain reliable thermodynamic data. The evaluated values of standard enthalpy of formation of CsBO$$_{2}$$(g), $$Delta$$$$_{f}$$H$$^{circ}$$$$_{298}$$(CsBO$$_{2}$$,g), by the 2nd and 3rd law treatments are -700.7$$pm$$10.7 kJ/mol and -697.0$$pm$$10.6 kJ/mol, respectively, and agree with each other within the errors, which suggests our data are reliable. Further, it was found that the existing data of the Gibbs energy function and the standard enthalpy of formation agreed well with the values evaluated in this study, which indicates the existing thermodynamic data are also reliable.
