Theoretical consideration has been made of the non-isothermal kinetics of consecutive reactions based on the superposition
principle. In the model the first reaction product reacts to form the final product and the two reactions proceed independently.
The amount of the first reaction product and the production rate of the final product have been obtained as a function of
time for isothermal cases and as a function of the reduced times for non-isothermal cases.
The transformation equation for the thermokinetics of consecutive first-order reactions has been deduced, and a thermokinetic
research method of irreversible consecutive first-order reactions, which can be used to determine the rate constants of two
steps simultaneously, is proposed. The method was validated and its theoretical basis was verified by the experimental results.

equal to 10 5 –10 9 M −1 s −1 [ 22 – 24 ]. This process leads to the appearance of a dibenzoazepine radical, which dimerizes and is oxidized to a blue–colored dimeric radical dication, (TCA •+ ) 2 , in the two consecutivereactions between the S 2 O 8
Slow pyrolysis of walnut shell which is a cheap and abundantly available solid waste was carried out using thermogravimetric
analysis. The effects of raw material heating rate on the pyrolysis properties and kinetic parameters were investigated. A
two-step consecutive reaction model were used to simulate the pyrolysis process. The kinetic parameters were established by
using the pattern search method. Comparison between experimental data and the model prediction indicated that the two-step
consecutive reaction model can better describe the slow pyrolysis of walnut shell as the formation of an intermediate during
the pyrolysis process was taken into account.
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.
