A kinetic interpretation of such behaviour is that given sufficient time, the continuous production of intermediate species (e.g., aldehydes) results in the increased production of hydroperoxyalkyl radicals (QOOH) and hydrogen peroxide ([H.sub.2]O2), which favour chain-propagation reactions, thus leading to enhanced cool flame exothermal activity [52].

The first exothermal effect during pyrolysis and oxidation of hemicellulose became apparent at the temperature of 84-405[degrees]C (max ~330.6[degrees]C).
During this slow exothermal reaction, heat will be emitted; however, no flames will be present, just a glow.
Injectable bioactive minerals, which provide immediate stability, harden with limited exothermal reactions and are strong enough to allow for an early and active rehabilitation will allow function to be restored more rapidly [5-8].
This assumption is confirmed by the fact that the exothermal effect occurred at the temperature of 350[degrees]C (fig.
The first, and most important, increase in temperature is caused by an acceleration of the exothermal hydration reactions, which reach a peak value after 11 hrs, when the hydration reaction is at its maximum efficiency.
This explanation was used by Krauss and Roos to explain a second "exothermal peak" which occurred when the irradiation was stopped after the first minimum and restarted 16 h later.
The dynamic capability of the bellows design dissipates the exothermal and mechanical energy.
Axson reports that, having been certified by independent laboratories, all offer excellent insulation, resistance to thermal shock, low exothermal qualities, and ease of use.
The oxidation reaction is exothermal, and is in many ways analogous to simple burning.
