Differential Scanning Calorimetry (Dsc), Mettler 822E

Queen Mary University of London

Dsc Analysis Is Used For Measuring Thermal Transitions, Such As Melting Point (Tm) And Glass Transition Temperature (Tg), In A Range Of Materials. The Analysis Involves A Sample Being Heated Over A Set Temperature Range. Any Energy Absorbed Or Evolved From A Sample Is Compensated For By Adding Or Subtracting An Equivalent Amount Of Electrical Energy To A Heater Located In The Sample Holder. This Results In Transitions Being Measured Directly, Providing More Accurate Results. The Analyser Is Cooled Using An Intracooler Allowing Operation From -65 To 600 Oc. This Dsc Has High Sensitivity For Weak Transitions And Is Automated (Robotic) Providing High Sample Throughput And Efficiency.
