decomposition of solids [ 1 , 3 – 5 ]. For many oxalates, the mechanism of thermal decomposition are well established and are commonly used as standard substances to confirm the exactness of theoretically developed models and equations of thermaldecomposition

and OWF equation
Activation energy of thermaldecompositionofsolid compound can be obtained by KAS equation ( Eq. 1 ) and OWF equation ( Eq. 2 ), respectively.
where q is the heating rate (K min −1 ), T is the reaction temperature (K
≤ α eq ≤ 1) one can obtain value of K for α eq = 1
When many gaseous products are released in thermaldecompositionofsolid ( i > 1), one can conclude that thermodynamic equilibrium constant is very small, close to zero. In the case of
