Decomposition temperature

Temperature at which spontaneous decomposition occurs. In practice, it is impossible to indicate the exact value of this temperature, because the reaction rate is only zero at absolute zero temperature (0 K) conforming to the equation of Arrhenius. Therefore, in measuring the decomposition temperature both sample quantity and sensitivity of the measuring device are very important.
