    Good days,

    normal or basic complete reaction might happen in open air firing inside the furnace might be describe as below if factors like intermediates reaction, or etc are eliminated (in this case)

    AO + BO --> AB(2O)


    what if the starting raw materials is having extra O element for example

    AO + B(O) + (2O) --> ABO4

    where did (2O) comes from.. it is because of open air firing .. because the environment for the firing is done not in the oxygen control.

    thank you

    Re: Firing

    I'm not sure if I understand your question, but the air has oxygen inside, so it is a potential reaction partner as well as your AO and everything else present at the reaction.
