The heat decomposition rate of guanosine-5'-monophosphate was investigated in pH range from 5.52 to 7.00, and 0.1 of the ionic strength. The result showed that the rate was a first-order reaction and the rate of guanosine-5'-monophosphate loss was maximum near $pKa_2$. The loss of guanosine-5'-monophosphate was temperature dependent and followed to the Arrhenius equation in the temperature region from $93^{\circ}C$ to $108^{\circ}C$. The rate constant as function of temperature ($93^{\circ}C$ to $108^{\circ}C$) and neutral pH($pKa_2$, 6.0, to 7.0) was correlated by least-square fit of the experimental data; $$K=4.19{\times}10^{26}\;{\exp}\;[-1.3(pH+E/RT)]$$
