Influence of Open-Porous System on the Solid-State Phase Transition in 1-Octadecene
Keywords:solid-state phase transition, nanocrystals, porous silica gel
The solid-state phase transition in the silica gel–1-octadecene system has been studied at various temperatures with the help of differential scanning calorimetry and FTIR spectroscopy. Silica gels KSK-2.5, KSS-4, and Silica Gel 60 with different surface parameters are used. The temperature of the solid-state phase transition in the silica gel–1-octadecene system is shown to linearly depend on the ratio between the pore surface area and the pore volume. The energy characteristics of 1-octadecene nanocrystals in the surface layer are calculated in the framework of a thermodynamical model of crystal melting in pores.
