Solid-State Kinetic Models: Basics and Mathematical Fundamentals
journal contributionposted on 07.09.2006, 00:00 by Ammar Khawam, Douglas R. Flanagan
Many solid-state kinetic models have been developed in the past century. Some models were based on mechanistic grounds while others lacked theoretical justification and some were theoretically incorrect. Models currently used in solid-state kinetic studies are classified according to their mechanistic basis as nucleation, geometrical contraction, diffusion, and reaction order. This work summarizes commonly employed models and presents their mathematical development.
