Simultaneous TGA/DSC Analyzer

Indispensable techniques in the design of new metal precursors and understanding the structure/composition of nanocomposites

Thermogravimetric analysis and differential scanning calorimetry (TGA/DSC, Netzsch STA 449 F1 Jupiter) are complementary techniques to investigate a material’s response to different temperatures — mass change (e.g., decomposition or sublimation temperatures) and thermal changes often unaccompanied by the mass change as a function of temperature (e.g., melting, glass transition, second order phase transition, enthalpy, and heat capacity measurements). Upgrade of the instruments with GC/MS analyzer of the decomposition products is pending.
