Charrier, E., Charsley, Edward L., Markham, H.M., Berger, B. and Griffiths, Trevor T. (2006) Determination of the temperature and enthalpy of the solid-solid phase transition of caesium nitrate by differential scanning calorimetry. Thermochimica Acta, 445. pp. 36-39. ISSN 0040-6031

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.
