An experimental method for the determination of kinetic data for liquid-phase reactions under linear rise of temperature is explained for the depolymerization of trioxane. Integral kinetic analysis of the data is performed in order to determine the kinetic model and the kinetic parameters. Experiments have been carried out at different heating rates between 0.5 and 2 deg/min, leading to similar kinetic parameters. The obtained results are in agreement with the kinetic model and parameters obtained from isothermal kinetic analysis. The programmedtemperature method seems to be a useful tool for a quick determination of kinetic models, avoiding experimental work.
