Abstract  

This paper explains why directly agitated test cells are sometimes required in order to obtain good adiabatic calorimetry data that can be used with confidence to predict large scale plant behaviour. Experiments for methyl methacrylate polymerisation are reported. Simple procedures are presented for calculating genuine thermo-kinetic parameters from data which includes energy dissipation from the stirrer drive system.

Abstract  

A procedure is described for dealing with the error sources inherently present in any real calorimeter: work of powerP s input from stirrer and possibly temperature sensor, and heat exchange at a rate −G(T−T e) whereT andT c are the temperatures of calorimeter and surroundings respectively. The constantsP s andG are calculated from a period of thermal decay, and afterwards are used to correct the entire run. A calorimeter was designed with high thermal homogeneity and used in a test. The curve of calculated temperature exactly traces the heater energy, even after 5 h, with a standard deviation of about 1 mK. The relative error inC p is less than 1/1000.

Abstract  

An adiabatic calorimeter in which automation of the control of the adiabatic condition and the thermogram recording is achieved in a simple way has been designed for studies of both thermochemistry and thermokinetics. A new method for specific heat measurements has been proposed and specific heats ofn-heptane were measured to test the reliability of this calorimeter.

Abstract  

Reactions with large negative enthalpy changes are often encountered in the chemical industry. Sometimes they give rise to technical dangers and hazards, including explosions. This investigation concentrates on examination of adiabatic temperature-time-curves and gives non-linear optimization procedures for obtaining kinetic parameters of simple decompositions,e.g. o-nitrobezaldehyde, two types of autocatalysis, consecutive reactions and competitive consecutive reactions. The advantage of this computing method is that only differential kinetic equations are needed.
