About this book
Thermal Decomposition of Solids and Melts describes the results of investigations into the mechanisms and kinetics involved in the thermal decomposition of solid and liquid substances via thermochemical analysis (TA). The main features of these thermal decomposition reactions are explained within and the observed anomalies are interpreted. New methods of TA measurement and calculation have been developed, which permit the precision and accuracy of determination of kinetic parameters to be increased substantially. Reliable kinetic characteristics have been obtained and the decomposition mechanisms for several substances have been interpreted. These include different classes of compounds:
- crystalline hydrates
This book is intended for advanced undergraduates, researchers, and technologists working in the fields of engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, and material science.
