Kinetics, also called reaction kinetics or chemical kinetics, investigates the rates of chemical processes and allows for the determination of reaction rates. The NETZSCH Kinetics Neo software is used for the analysis of chemical processes. It enables analysis of temperature-dependent processes. The result of such analysis is a kinetics model or method that correctly describes experimental data under various temperature conditions. The model allows for the prediction of the behavior of a chemical system under user-defined temperature conditions. Alternatively, such models can also form the basis for process optimization. In this short webinar, we explain how to import data from different thermal analysis methods into the software. Furthermore, the difference between model-free and model-based analysis is described. In the model-free analysis, there is no assumption of a kinetic model for the process. One drawback of this analysis is that it is not possible to determine the number of reaction steps, their contribution to the total effect or the order in which they occur.
Step-by-step to a model-based analysis
Approximately 95% of all chemical reactions are multi-step reactions. This requires a multi-step analytical engine as offered by the Kinetics Neo software developed by NETZSCH. It uses powerful cutting-edge mathematical calculations to create the best model and allows for statistical comparison of the different kinetic models. In the webinar, we will guide you through the model-based analysis step-by-step. Finally, two more features of the software are demonstrated:
- Simulation of reaction behavior under new temperature conditions
- Development of a suitable temperature program for optimum product quality
The Kinetics Neo software solution by NETZSCH is a powerful tool to optimize production in a cost-effective manner, as trial and error experiments are no longer necessary. Kinetics Neo offers the ability to start your development for a new product with a solid database. Watch the video to find out how it works!
