Molten Salt

Molten salt refers to a salt, which is normally a solid at standard temperature and pressure (STP), being in the liquid phase due to elevated temperature. A salt that is normally liquid even at STP is usually called a room temperature ionic liquid, although technically molten salts are a class of ionic liquids.

Famous quotes containing the words salt and/or molten:

    When the salt sheet broke in a storm of singing
    The voices of all the drowned swam on the wind.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    Thou art a soul in bliss, but I am bound
    Upon a wheel of fire, that mine own tears
    Do scald like molten lead.
