Simulated thermal desorption spectra have been used to test the performance of several analysis procedures for obtaining the correct activation energy as a function of adsorbate coverage. The so-called complete method and the leading edge analysis give reliable results. The use of approximate methods, however, which are based on peak maximum temperatures and/or peak width, should be avoided.
