Abstract  

This research was aimed to investigate the role of clay on the combustion and kinetic behavior of crude oils in limestone matrix. For this purpose, simultaneous TG (thermogravimetry) and DTA (differential thermal analysis) experiments were performed at three different heating rates as 10–15 and 20C min–1, respectively. A uniform trend of decreasing activation energies was observed with the addition of clay. It was concluded that clays surface area affects the values of Arrhenius constant, while it is the catalytic properties of clay, which lower the activation energies of all the reactions, involved in the combustion process.

Abstract  

The paper presents the model-free kinetic approach in the context of the traditional kinetic description based on the kinetic triplet, A, E, and f(α) or g(α). A physical meaning and interpretability of the triplet are considered. It is argued that the experimental values of f(α) or g(α) and A are unlikely to be interpretable in the respective terms of the reaction mechanism and of the vibrational frequency of the activated complex. The traditional kinetic description needs these values for making kinetic predictions. Interpretations are most readily accomplished for the experimental value of E that generally is a function of the activation energies of the individual steps of a condensed phase process. Model-free kinetic analysis produces a dependence of E on α that is sufficient for accomplishing theoretical interpretations and kinetic predictions. Although model-free description does not need the values of A and f(α) or g(α), the methods of their estimating are discussed.

Abstract  

The curing reaction of a thermosetting system is investigated by DSC and temperature modulated DSC (TMDSC). When the material vitrifies during curing, the reaction becomes diffusion controlled. The phase shift signal measured by TMDSC includes direct information on the reaction kinetics. For long periods the phase shift is approximately proportional to the partial temperature derivative of the reaction rate. This signal is very sensitive for changes in the reaction kinetics. In the present paper an approach to determine the diffusion control influence on the reaction kinetics from the measured phase shift is developed. The results are compared with experimental data. Further applications of this method for other reactions are proposed.
