Activation energies of ignition for the thermokinetic oscillations obtained during the heterogeneous catalytic oxidation of
ethanol on Pd/Al2O3 in a dynamic calorimeter were obtained using the minimum values of the temperature oscillations. These activation energies
of ignition are greater than the activation energies of the corresponding oscillations. The obtained results are discussed
by assuming a PdOx redox cycle.
