The physico-geometric kinetics for the solid-state reactions by thermoanalytical (TA) measurements were reexamined by focusing
some fundamental aspects: (1) the fundamental kinetic equation, (2) the kinetic model function, (3) the fractional reaction
α, and (4) the apparent kinetic parameters. It was pointed out that some pitfalls in the practical kinetic study are originated
by the disagreement between the kinetic information from the TA measurements and the theory of the physico-geometric kinetics.
In order to increase the degree of coordination between the theory and practice, several attempts were made from both the
theoretical and experimental points of views. The significance of the apparent kinetic parameters was discussed with a possible
orientation for obtaining the reliable kinetic parameters.
The Avrami model of solid-state reactions or transformations has frequently been presented and compared with other stochastic models. The equation often applied is shown to be merely a simplification of the full Avrami model equation (FAME). A convenient procedure for application of the FAME to the kinetics of solid-state reactions is proposed.

Summary Previous study of the hydration and ageing products of two cement pastes created the basis for the postulate of the course of solid-state reactions between the portlandite Ca(OH)2 and the CO2 from air in the hydrated and air dry cement. XRD basal spacing d(001) of portlandite exceeded the nominal value and increased with ageing, with the wetting and drying procedure and with carbonate content of the paste, indicating that a part of OH- ions was gradually substituted by CO32- ions, which are about twice bigger. IR spectroscopy showed a considerable content of portlandite, of CO32- of water and silicates. Also HCO3- H2O and CO2 in cavities between hexagonal rings and hexagonal hydrates were indicated. By MS (mass spectrometry) in vacuum the evaporation of sorbed water was detected at 100-120°C, of gel water at 350°C of portlandite water at 400°C and of high temperature water between 500 and 700°C, simultaneously with CO2 escape. Slightly higher peak temperatures were found by the TG test either in air or in argon. From these results and from geometric considerations it is postulated that the solid-state reactions take place on ageing of the cement paste and on its heating: hexagonal portlandite?calcium carbonate hydroxy hydrate?calcium carbonate hydrate?hexagonal vaterite and/or orthorhombic aragonite?rhombohedral calcite The analysis of the standard files of the calcium carbonate hydroxy hydrates supports this postulate and indicates a gradual transformation.

Two easy laboratory methods for preparation of rare-earth orthophosphates (crystallisation from phosphoric acid solution and
solid-state reaction with (NH4)2HPO4) were compared on the basis of the products’ properties with a focus on their application as new inorganic pigments. The
preparation method has a significant influence on optical properties. The samples prepared by crystallisation have lighter
and less rich colour and also change colour more under sunlight irradiation. The surface properties analysed by SEM and presence
of a greater amount of phosphoric acid in the crystallisation procedure influence the pH and resistivity of aqueous extract
of products and thus their corrosion-inhibition properties. The optical properties of rare-earth orthophosphates and their
preliminary corrosion tests show their potential application as highly efficient corrosion-inhibition pigments.

It has been demonstrated that the kinetic data on solid-state reactions show a good fitting to the expressiong(α)=kt, regardless of the nature of theg(α) function previously assumed for performance of the calculations. Moreover, the activation energy value obtained from the
Arrhenius law is quite independent of the kinetic function assumed.
