Abstract

Improving our quarkochemical model by an energy balance equation we point out that quark-gluon plasma formation is energetically impossible below Elab ≈ 6 GeV/nucleon bombarding energy in heavy ion collisions. We compare the predictions for the observed hadronic composition of the hadrochemical and quarkochemical model. We find that one consequence of the quark matter formation will be a decrease in the meson production, corresponding to a low temperature of the plasma, instead of the large increase expected before.
