Thermodynamics of Converting uranyl nitrate to uranium oxide

  1. Jan 11, 2010 #1
    I would like to know if it is important to consider thermodynamic factors such as the Gibbs Free Energy to design a research project to convert uranyl nitrate to uranium oxide?

    It is important because only reactions with a negative Gibbs free energy will proceed spontaneously at constant temperature and pressure.
