 Title    Electrochemical and Thermodynamic Properties of EuC13 and EuC12 in an Equimolar NaCl-KCl Melt  
 Abstract    The electroreduction o f EuCl3 in an equimolar NaCl-KCl mixture was studied at 973 -1123 K by different electrochemical methods. This reduction of Eu(III) in NaCl-KCl melt occurs via two successive reversible steps involving transfer o f one and two electrons. The diffusion coefficients of Eu(III) and Eu(II) were measured by linear sweep voltammetry and chronopotentiometry. The values found by these methods are in a good agreement. The standard rate constants for the redox reaction Eu(III) + e~ <=> Eu(II) were calculated from cyclic voltammetry data. The sluggish kinetics of this reaction is discussed in terms o f substantial rearrangement of the europium coordination sphere. Special attention was paid to the choice of working electrodes for the study o f electrode reactions. The formal standard potentials E*E u (^ /Ba, E* eU (hr/eu and the formal redox potentials ^*Eu(ni)/Eu(ii) were determined from open-circuit potentiometry and linear sweep voltammetry data. The free Gibbs energy changes for the reaction EuC13(so1) EuCl2(SO i.) + 1/2 Cl2(g.) and the equilibrium constants o f the metal-salt reaction 2Eu(III) + Eu 3 Eu(II) were calculated. The thermodynamics of the formation o f dilute solutions of europium di-and trichloride in an equimolar NaCl-KCl melt were determined. It was shown that electrochemical transient techniques give the possibility o f the determination of the relative partial molar mixing enthalpy of europium trichloride and dichloride in NaCl-KCl melt.
