These are some common substances that undergo sublimation upon heating under the normal atmospheric pressure condition.
- dry ice (solid CO2, carbon dioxide)
- Ice & snow ( from Water )
- iodine crystals.
- Naphthalene (mothballs) Naphthalene – Wikipedia.
- Caffeine ( under vacuum )
- Phthalic Anhydride.
What substances can sublimate?
A number of solids are capable of sublimating at normal temperatures and pressures, including snow, iodine, arsenic, and solid carbon dioxide (dry ice). Sometimes other materials can be made to sublimate by creating low pressure conditions.
What is sublimation and its examples?
Sublimation is a type of phase transition, or a change in a state of matter, just like melting, freezing, and evaporation. Through sublimation, a substance changes from a solid to a gas without ever passing through a liquid phase. Dry ice, solid CO2, provides a common example of sublimation.
What is Sublimable substance?
The substance which changes its state from one to another which is being converted into another is known as sublimable substance. examples: 1)Dry ice.
