ASTM WK27880

    New Practice for Evaluation of Methods for Determination of Kinetic Parameters by Thermal Analysis

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E27.02 | Committee E27 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    1.1 It is the purpose of this practice to provide kinetic parameters for reference materials used for evaluation of thermal analysis methods, apparatus, and software when enthalpy and temperature are measured. This practice addresses both exothermic and endothermic, nth order, and autocatalytic reactions. 1.2 The values given in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. No other units are in this standard. 1.3 There is no ISO equivalent to this standard. 1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
