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 …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
