Abstract Augis and Bennett (J. Thermal Anal. 13 (1978) 283.) [6] recently proposed a modified Kissinger method for determining the activation energy of a transformation. It is shown that the proposed method was, in fact, based upon a modification to the equation for the rate of reaction under non-isothermal conditions. The apparent discrepancy between the proposed method and the original Kissinger method is therefore resolved. The modified rate equation appears to have, at best, only a limited application. However, if the equation should be appropriate for a particular transformation, it is demonstrated that Augis and Bennett's method would be the correct method for determining the activation energy.
