Micro-calorimetric method for studying thermodynamics of the saponification of ethyl acetate has been introduced. The reaction rate constant can be calculated easily from the related dates measured. Studies have also been carried out to compare the micro-calorimetric method with the electrical conductivity detection.

Key words: Saponification of ethyl acetate, Micro-calorimetric method, Thermodynamics
