Transitions and Phases Diagrams University of Bordeaux
This course is focused on the stability and equilibrium of phases. Itdeals with the thermodynamic description of phases and theirtransformation.
- Academic level: BSc Selection criteria: basic knowledge inchemistry and/or physical chemistry. - Language prerequisites: English or Frenc.
- Written final exam: 3h00 = 100 % of the overall mark. - The first session will take place in April.In case of failure, a second session is organized for the final exam,either as a written final exam or an oral session depending on thenumber of failing students. This 2nd session takes place at the end ofJune.
1. PHASE TRANSITIONS - The goal of this course is to describe phase transitions of puresubstances and binary mixtures. The link between a microscopicdescription of the system and its macroscopic behavior is at the coreof the course. - Physical transformations of pure substances: chemical potential;condition of equilibrium between phases. Microscopic modeling (Van DerWaals model). Stability condition of thermodynamic potentials, binodaland spinodal, critical points. - Physical transformations of Binary mixtures: Chemical potential ofa component in a mixture. Colligative properties. Microscopic modelsof mixtures (ideal solutions, regular solutions). Equilibrium in aliquid/liquid two-phase system. Stability condition of a mixture.Binodal and spinodal in liquid/liquid phase separation. - Liquid/vapor equilibrium in mixtures: Influence of the compositionon the boiling point. Application to distillation. Azeotrope. - Practical course: Thermodynamics of mixtures.2. Phase DiagramsThis teaching deals with the thermodynamics of solid and liquidsolutions. The aim is an advanced mastering of binary and ternaryphases diagrams.Program: - Thermodynamics of the solid and liquid solution - Diagrams of binary and ternary phases (invariant transformations,peritectic, eutectic,...; solidification paths) - Free enthalpy diagrams in function of temperature and composition. - Gas-solid interactions (Ellingham diagram).
