The decomposition of the solid solution KFe3(SO4)2?x(CrO4)x(OH)6 and its capacity todetain CrO4 2? under alkaline conditions were studied. A solution of Ca(OH)2 was the media used. The incorporation of CrO42? in crystalline structure of jarosite, resulted in a solidsolution with the following approximate formula:[K0.86(H3O)0.14]Fe2.67[(SO4)1.23(CrO4)0.77][(OH)5.01(H2O)0.99]. The experimental datadescribe a reaction based in the model of decreasing core with chemical control.Decomposition curve shows an induction period, characterized by the formation of active centers where is initiated and established a reaction front, that is the beginning of the progressive conversion period, during which is formed a layer of inert products of Fe(OH)3and is characterized for the massive diffusion of K+, SO42? and CrO42? toward the solution.However, the mappings by SEM-EDS from a particle decomposed partially, shows that the SO42? is released preferentially, meanwhile, an important quantity of the CrO42? is adsorbedin the layer of Fe(OH)3.
