Thermodynamic activities of chromium oxide contained in CaO-SiO2-MgO-Al2O3 melts were measured in the present work using gas-slag equilibrium technique. The oxygen partial pressure was varied (10(-)3, 10(-4), 10(-5) Pa). Gas mixture of CO, CO2 and Ar were used and investigated at 1803, 1873 and 1923 K. The activities of CrO showed a strong positive deviation from ideality and a decrease with increasing temperature and oxygen partial pressure. A mathematical expression relating the amount of chromium oxide in the slag phase with the activity of Cr in the metal phase based on the present experimental results is presented.
