Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC):

DSC is a thermos analytical technique in which the difference in the amount of heat required to increase the temperature of a sample and reference is measured as a function of temperature. DSC analysis is used to measure melting temperature, heat of fusion, latent heat of melting, reaction energy and temperature, glass transition temperature, crystalline phase transition temperature and energy, precipitation energy and temperature, denaturization temperatures, oxidation induction times, and specific heats.

Applications:

  • Polymers
  • Liquid crystals
  • Oxidative stability
  • Safety screening
  • Drug analysis
  • General chemical analysis
