Comparison of differential and integral methods for coal oxidation kinetic analysis

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The influence of two different methods of kinetic analysis on obtained values of kinetic constants of coal oxidation process was studied. The oxidation of T-grade bituminous coal of Kuznetskiy deposit and 2B-grade lignite of Borodinskoe deposit was investigated by means of thermogravimetric analysis. All measurements were carried out with heating rates 2,5, 10, 25 and 40 K/min in temperature range 300-1100 K in air medium. The dependences of activation energy and frequency factor on conversion were obtained using two isoconversional methods: differential method of Freidman and integral method of Kissinger-Akahira-Sunose. The average values of activation energy which were obtained by KAS method were higher by 14.5 % for bituminous coal and 23.3 % for lignite in comparison with values obtained by Freidman method. The same relations were observed for frequency factor values.
