TGA/DSC THERMAL GRAVICMETRIC ANALYSIS / DIFFERENTIAL EXPLORATORY CALORIE/HEAT MEASUREMENTS

  • Thermal gravimetric analysis, or TGA, is a analytic technique based on the loss or gain of mass while a sample undergoes a controlled gradients of temperature to determine the temperature at which a given substance attains a defined, stable chemical composition. This technique may be used to monitor on-going dehydration, oxidation, combustion, decomposition processes, among others. 

    Differential exploratory calorie/heat measurement involves the energy that is released during phase change, or enthalpy, as a sample is heated. It can be used to determine crystallization and fusion temperatures, fusion and crystallization enthalpies, and the temperature of vitrification
