The sequences of solid-phase reactions preceding formation of atomic vapors in the pyrolytic graphite-coated furnace have been inferred from appearance temperatures, activation energies, and multiple-phase high-temperature thermodynamic calculations. Of these, only the latter provides information on the penultimate and earlier steps preceding atom formation.
