The reversion reactions between Mg vapor and CO can affect the condensation of magnesium vapor, and become to the major technical challenges.Most of the researchers focused on the condensation of magnesium produced by carbothermic reduction and concluded that there are two routes for condensing magnesium vapor: the “quench” route and the “solvent” route.Recent years, the carbothermic reduction of magnesia under vacuum conditions had been studied at KMUST. Previous studies found that condensing temperature and temperature gradients have a significant impact on the condensation process of magnesium vapor.But it is not clear that how do the reversion reaction impact on the condensation of magnesium vapor. Therefore, through the experiment studying, we try to reveal the impact of reversion reaction on condensation of magnesium vapor in order to provide the basic theory for the mechanism of condensation of magnesium vapor.
