Abstract: The kinetic parameters and mechanism of dehydration of CaC_2O_4·H_2O have been studied by correlative judging method on the basis of thermogravimetry experiments. Results show that thermal dehydration of CaC_2O_4·H_2O is regulated by an A_3 mech-anism, i.e. random nucleation followed by subsequent growth. The kinetic parame-ters obtained are as follows: activation energy E=85.15 kJ·mol~(-1), frequency factor A=5.58×10~8 min~(-1), the compensation equation is log A=0.1119E-0.7832.

Key words: Calcium of oxalate, Thermogravimetry, Correlative judging method
