The relative errors (e%) in the determination of the activation energy from the slope of the Kissinger straight line ln(β/βTp2) vs. 1/Tp (β is the heating rate) are in-depth discussion. Our work shows that the relative errors is a function containing the factors
of xp and Δxp, not only xp (xp = E/RTp, E is the activation energy, Tp is the temperature corresponding to maximum process rate, R is the gas constant). The relative error between Ek and Ep will be smaller with the increase of the value of x and/or with the decrease of the value of Δx. For a set of different heating rates in thermal analysis experiments, the low and close heating rates are proposed from
the kinetic theory.

The performances of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) by CO/H2 over two Pd/TiO2/Al2O3 catalysts prepared from PdCl2 and Pd(NO3)2 precursors were compared. The catalytic activities (NOx conversion and N2 yield) were measured on these two catalysts. The catalytic properties of the prepared catalysts were studied by various characterization
techniques such as BET, CO-chemisorption, TEM, XPS, and TPD. The Pd precursors influenced the Pd particle distribution, resulting
in different catalytic activities.
