Some problems concerning the evaluation of non-isothermal kinetic parameters

Solid-gas decompositions from thermogravimetric data

The validity of isoconversional methods used to evaluate the activation energy is discussed. The authors have shown that the Flynn-Wall-Ozawa and Friedman methods give results that agree with each other only if the activation energy does not change with the degree of conversion. A criterion for the reaction mechanism as expressed by the differential conversion function is suggested too.

The paper discusses three fast methods for determination of the reaction order, as follows: the single-point method proposed by Kissinger, Horowitz and Metzger, an original two-point method, and the three-point method suggested by a Gorbachev's paper. These methods cannot elucidate the reaction mechanism, but they can help in the rapid derivation of the apparent kinetic parametersn andE.
