Abstract

Reaction calorimetry measurements have been performed and used for the calculation of the heat of reaction, the thermal mass of the reactor and for the development of a global kinetic model for the homogeneous catalytic decomposition of hydrogen peroxide, which is a commonly encountered unwanted reaction in numerous oxidation processes. The use of this model targets the assessment of the thermal risk associated with the runaway behaviour of this reaction at industrial conditions.
