The most universal approach to determine the peak temperature for thermally activated transformations is the Kissinger equation. In this paper, we solve Kissinger equation to deduce the exact dependence of the peak temperature on the heating rate. This analytical solution is based on the Lambert W-function. In addition, an approximate solution is derived that is used to infer general properties of thermally activated processes and to obtain a test to check the validity of Kissinger method" , "dc.description.sponsorship": "This work was partially funded by the Spanish Programa Nacional de Materiales through project MAT2011-28874-C02-02 and by the Generalitat de Catalunya contract No. 2009SGR-185" , "dc.format.extent": "8 p." , "dc.format.mimetype": "application/pdf" , "dc.language.iso": "eng" , "dc.publisher": "Elsevier" , "dc.relation": "MICINN/PN 2012-2014/MAT2011-28874-C02-02" , "dc.relation": "AGAUR/2009-2013/2009 SGR-185" , "dc.relation.isformatof": "Versió postprint del document publicat a: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.tca.2014.10.024" , "dc.relation.ispartof": "© Thermochimica Acta, 2014, vol. 598, p. 51-58" , "dc.relation.ispartofseries": "Articles publicats (D-F)" , "dc.rights": "Tots els drets reservats" , "dc.source": "Farjas Silva, Jordi Roura Grabulosa, Pere 2014 Exact analytical solution for the Kissinger equation: Determination of the peak temperature and general properties of thermally activated transformations Thermochimica Acta 598 51 58" , "dc.subject": "Termodinàmica" , "dc.subject": "Thermodynamic" , "dc.subject": "Kissinger's functions" , "dc.subject": "Kissinger, Funcions de" , "dc.subject": "Lambert’s functions" , "dc.subject": "Lambert, Funcions de" , "dc.title": "Exact analytical solution for the Kissinger equation: Determination of the peak temperature and general properties of thermally activated transformations" , "dc.type": "info:eu-repo/semantics/article" , "dc.rights.accessRights": "info:eu-repo/semantics/openAccess" , "dc.type.version": "info:eu-repo/semantics/acceptedVersion" , "dc.identifier.doi": "http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.tca.2014.10.024" , "dc.identifier.idgrec": "022272" , "dc.contributor.funder": "Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación (Espanya)" , "dc.contributor.funder": "Generalitat de Catalunya.
