The theoretical curves in the coordinates a vs. time for isothermal, and avs. temperature for non-isothermal experiments are calculated as functions of three kinetic parameters: activation energyE, pre-exponentical factorA and theg(α) function describing the mechanism of thermal decomposition of solids. The results show that conclusions not taking into consideration all three parameters can lead to information of little value concerning the mechanism of the decomposition and kinetic calculations. A correlation between non-isothermal and isothermal experiments, important for determination of the thermal stabilities of the compounds, is impossible without a knowledge of theg(α) function.
