Abstract: It is sometimes difficult to obtain physically meaningful parameters from experimental data for a chemical system when the mathematical model describing the system involves nonlinear functions. A simple method has been developed for the prediction of heat of reaction and equilibrium constants from experimental temperature−time data of exothermic reversible processes in adiabatic conditions. The success of this new technique is demonstrated by predicting the heat of reaction and equilibrium constant as a function of temperature for ethanol−acetic acid and propanol−acetic acid systems at temperatures between 283 and 295 K and 285 and 297 K, respectively. This technique may be useful in the estimation of heats of reaction and equilibrium constants for exothermic reversible processes at higher temperatures.
