ABSTRACT: Thermal diffusion, as a method of separating the components of a mixture under the influence of a thermal gradient, has received great attention. Since 1938, the number of publications on this subject has greatly increased. Thermal diffusion has been used for the separation of isotopes and is now of considerable technical importance in other fields.
This second bibliography on thermal diffusion contains a comprehensive compilation of references from scientific and technical literature on thermal diffusion for the period 1965 - December 31, 1995, arranged chronologically and then alphabetically according to the leading author (1827 references). In order to make this bibliography more generally useful for those interested in thermal diffusion, an Author Index and a Subject Index have been supplied, representing a comprehensive picture of the content.
The first bibliography on the same subject has been compiled by G. Vasaru and I. Rap: "Thermal Diffusion", and published by the International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna, - being the first IAEA publication printed in a microfiche form (STI/PUB/21/28, March 1968, IAEA, Vienna, Austria). It covered the literature for the period 1856 - 1966 (1650 references).
