The six phase transitions in chemistry are melting, freezing, evaporating, condensing, sublimation, and deposition. These phase transitions are used to refer to how an element changes from one state to another.

Solid to gas is evaporation. Solid to liquid condensation. Both are phase transitions.

Phase changes are physical processes.

solid, liquid and gas these are the 3 phases we refer to in chemistry.

Changes in state are called phase transitions. Each of the phase transitions has a technical name and many have common names. The change from solid to liquid is fusion (or melting). The change from liquid to solid is solidification (or freezing). The change from liquid to gas is vaporization (or boiling). The change from gas to liquid is condensation. The change from solid to gas is sublimation.

analytical chemistry. it is one of the six major branches of chemistry.

A phase transition is the transformation of a thermodynamic system from one phase or state of matter to another. Types of phase transitions are called melting, boiling, etc. They are just terms to describe the specific transition.

Several areas of chemistry rely on physical chemistry concepts. For instance: Thermodynamics and reaction rates: biochemistry and enzymology Electron-nucleus interactions: mechanisms in organic chemistry Excited state transitions: spectroscopy in analytical chemistry Solubility: biomolecules (biochemistry), separations (analytical chemistry) But no set branch is next to another, the concepts lend themselves all over the board.

I believe the term phase transition is appropriate here as each state of matter ie solid, liquid and gas, is a different phase of the same element or compound. So for example at the point when water boils it transitions from its liquid phase to its gaseous phase.

The chemistry of rutherfordium is now only in a very incipient phase.

Phase transitions cost energy, so that energy doesn't go into heat

The branches of science that use phase diagram are physical chemistry, mineralogy, and materials science. Phase diagram is also used in the field of mineralogy.

There is a branch of chemistry called physical chemistry, which deals with phase changes (the phases being solid, liquid, or gas). Clouds involve phase changes. Liquid water evaporates to produce clouds which then condense back into liquid to produce rain, or freeze to produce snow. Chemistry can shed light on exactly how these things happen.

My chemistry is a litte rusty but I believe that Bromine is unusual because it sublimates - goes from solid phase to gaseous phase without going through liquid phase.

If you are talking about phase in the context of "the three phases of matter", (eg gas, liquid, solid), then a similar term used is "the three states of matter". If you are talking about phase in the context of oscillations, "phase" or "phase difference" is correct.

What sort of transitions are you asking about?

Transitions Optical's population is 1,200.

Three of the areas of research that are affected by chemistry are organic, theoretical, and biochemistry. The other three are polymer science, surface and colloid chemistry, and analytical/environmental chemistry.
