The literature reveals that the mechanisms of some solid-state dehydrations are more complicated than has been generally accepted. Reactions at a thin advancing reactant-product interface provide the geometric models on which the most widely employed rate equations are based. For some systems, this “thin interface” model is a simplification of observed behaviour. Elimination of water from crystallographic sites may occur to a significant extent within a much thicker zone of reactant towards which the active interface is progressing. Consequently the region of chemical change may not coincide with the region of structural transformation. Limited initial dehydration may occur across all crystal faces prior to the onset of a nucleation and growth process that is usually regarded as the dominant rate process in the dehydrations of many large crystals. Experimental observations for solid-state dehydrations are discussed and reaction mechanisms with different rate controlling processes are distinguished. Studies of dehydrations have contributed substantially to the theory of solid-state reactivity, and advances in understanding may have wider application to other solid-state reactants.
mechanistic work has focused on chronic exercise behavior and its ability to induce neurogenesis, gliogenesis, angiogenesis, cerebral circulation, and growth factor production ( 8 , 28 , 29 , 31 , 40 , 42 ). Of interest herein are the mechanisms of acute
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.

later, have remained a puzzle and a subject for discussion. The traditional theoretical approach, based on the kinetic Arrhenius equation and the mechanism of direct reduction of solid oxide to solid metal, have failed to provide a reliable quantitative
