Enthalpy of Fusion of Indium: A Certified Reference Material for Differential Scanning Calorimetry

Published

Author(s)

Donald G. Archer, S Rudtsch

Abstract

An adiabatic calorimeter was used to measure the enthalpy of fusion of a very pure sample of indium. The new value of the enthalpy of fusion was determined to be δfusH = (28.6624 0.0076) J g-1, where the uncertainty corresponded to a 95% confidence interval. The temperature of fusion of this sample was found to not differ with the ITS-90 assigned value within the accuracies of the thermometry used in the present study. A comparison with previous determinations is made.
