The kinetics of heterogeneous reactions, involving one reactant in the solid phase, usually follow the lawα=K exp(−E/kT)f(1−α), where α is the degree of conversion of the solid, andK andE are the kinetic constants. A critical examination is given of the various methods which are currently used to analyse dynamic experimental data. The limitations of these methods and their insensitivity to the form off(1-α) are pointed out. An alternative approach free from these limitations is suggested. In this,f(1−α) is determined from isothermal experiments, and then the dynamic data are accurately analyzed to obtain the values of the kinetic constants. A case study is given to elucidate the applicability of the approach.
