The equilibrium temperature of the solid–solid phase transition of high purity caesium nitrate has been measured accurately by stepwise heating and by the extrapolation to zero heating rate method. A mean value of 154.3 ± 0.1 °C was obtained using two different heat flux DSC instruments. A value of 3.44 ± 0.04 kJ mol−1 was determined for the enthalpy of transition.
