Samples of zinc sulfate and ferric oxide were roasted for periods of one, two and three hours at temperatures between 750° and 1000°C. The per cent zinc oxide combined, as zinc ferrite, was determined by dissolving the soluble zinc in a ammonium-ammonia chloride solution. Six samples were roasted at 750°C to determine the degree of decomposition of zinc sulfate to zinc oxide and sulfur trioxide.
