A new evaluation method is presented to analyse the temperature dependance of reactions with rates that can be separated into a temperature dependent and a concentration dependent part. The proposed method allows to evaluate isothermal, adiabatic, isoperibolic and temperature programmed measurements in an unified manner. To determine the activation energy an Arrhenius law but no explicite kinetic model has to be assumed. The application of the method is demonstrated using experimental data of different reactions from former investigations.
