The SRC-100 type solution-reaction calorimeter was improved to a more precise and versatile isoperibol combustion-solution-reaction microcalorimeter. The energy equivalent of the calorimeter was calibrated to be Ccalor=(987.63±0.61) J·K-1 by the electric calibration method. The standard massic energy of combustion of benzoic acid and succinic acid were determined by the developed isoperibol combustion-solution-reaction microcalorimeter as △cUm, Bθ(cr, T=298.15K)=-(26425.99±10.70) J·g-1 and △cUm, Sθ(cr, T=298.15K)=-(12621.97±5.30) J·g-1, respec-tively. The uncertainty of the measurement was less than 0.04% and the accuracy was higher than 0.05%.
