Predictions

Prediction Goal

The goal is to simulate the reaction behavior under new temperature conditions where it is either too expensive or not possible to carry out direct experiments.

For predictions, a variety of temperature programs are available within NETZSCH Kinetics Neo.

Prediction Types

  • Isothermal
  • Dynamic
  • Multiple step
  • Step iso
  • Modulated isothermal
  • Modulated dynamic
  • Adiabatic
  • Time-Temperature-Transition (TTT)

Prediction Results

Predictions can be calculated under various conditions. Depending on the conditions, the results can be depicted in various ways including:

  • Conversion curve as a function of time with temperature as a parameter
  • Concentration over time of the formal reactants with temperature as a parameter
  • Partial reaction, mass loss and area
  • Reaction rate for individual reaction steps

  ...and many more.
