Abstract

A Southern Rhodesian cesium ore containing essentially pollucite was chlorinated by a gaseous mixture of sulfur chloride and chlorine at temperatures between 500 and 700°C. The reaction products consisted principally of SiCl4, AlCl3, CsCl, and CsCl • A1Cl3. Under favorable conditions for chlorination, 17 wt % of the ore remained unreacted. The optimum conditions were the fixed bed reactor used in this study were chlorination at 650°C for 4.5 hr with an ore particle size that passes a 150 mesh sieve.
