The parameters of the Arrhenius equation determined by the linear, weighted linear and non-linear least squares methods and by the simplex method are compared. Since the non-linear least squares method permits the consideration of statistical weights of both the dependent (k) and independent (T) variables and does not involve logarithmic transformation, it is advisable to calculate the parameters of the Arrhenius equation by means of the non-linear least squares method.

The existing methods of approach to solve the integral in the Arrhenius equation (Coats-Redfern, Gorbachev, Zsakó, Balarin etc.), when the standard linearization method of the integral kinetic equation is applied in order to determine the value of the activation energyE, yield factually identical results. Hence attempts to find more accurate approaches have no practical sense.

Some kinetic aspects of thermal analysis

Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry
Author: M. Brown

Abstract  

This paper is a review of some of the controversial kinetic aspects of thermal analysis, starting from the ‘šesták questions’ posed in 1979 and looking at developments in some areas since that time. Aspects considered include: temperature programmes and variations, models and mechanisms, kinetic parameters, distinguishability and extent of fit of kinetic models, complementary evidence for kinetic models, the Arrhenius equation and the compensation effect. The value of the ideas of non-isothermal kinetics in chemical education is emphasized.

Abstract  

Hydroxy benzoic acids were subjected to rising temperature thermogravimetric analysis. After optimizing the procedural variables, the kinetics of decomposition was determined and methyl paraben was taken as the calibration compound to characterize the evaporation patterns for the ortho and meta derivatives. The E act values for ortho, meta and para derivatives were 64.8, 78.2, and 119.1 kJ mol–1, respectively. The Antoine and Langmuir equations were utilized to determine the coefficient of evaporation k, which was 1245250.8, units being in the SI system. The vapor pressure plots were generated for the ortho and meta derivatives; ΔH vap for these two compounds were obtained as 66.7 and 80.4 kJ mol–1, respectively.
