Abstract: Abstract A new graphical estimation technique is proposed for the determination of the kinetic parameters describing an autocatalytic reaction. A differential scanning calorimeter was used to monitor the reaction kinetics of an epoxy‐based vinyl ester resin. The method utilizes information from a zero initial reaction rate, conversation at vitrification, the ratio of reaction rate constants under different isothermal conditions, and characteristics of the phenomenological kinetic model with assumptions being …
