Calorimetric Measurement of the Kinetics of Slow Reactions

A brief review of the application of calorimetry to measurement of the kinetics of slow processes is presented. Processes degrading or otherwise changing the properties of materials often occur too slowly to be readily measured by conventional chemical analyses but can be measured in a relatively short period of time by heat conduction calorimetry. Instrument selection and derivation of rate laws from calorimetric data are discussed, and illustrative examples are presented.
