Abstract

Pure and doped samples of sodium oxalate (Na2C2O4) were subjected to pre-compression and their thermal decomposition kinetics was studied at five different temperatures in the range 783–803 K under isothermal conditions by thermogravimetry. The pre-compressed samples decomposed in two stages governed by different rate laws; the Prout–Tompkins model best describes the acceleratory stage of the decomposition while the decay region is best fitted with the contracting cylinder model as in the case of uncompressed sodium oxalate samples. The rate constants k1 and k2 of the acceleratory and deceleratory stages of the thermal decomposition were dramatically decreased on pre-compression. However, the activation energies, evaluated by model fitting kinetic method, E1 and E2 for the respective stages of decomposition remained unaltered by pre-compression. The results favor ionic diffusion mechanism proposed earlier on the basis of doping studies.
