Thermal Analysis of Inorganic Materials - METTLER TOLEDO

On Demand Webinar

Thermal Analysis of Inorganic Materials

Inorganic materials are widely used in the chemical industry, in construction materials and agriculture. The four main techniques of thermal analysis, DSC, TGA, TMA, and DMA are ideal for the characterization of such materials. The most important advantage is that properties can be measured as function of temperature or time over a wide temperature range, namely from 150 to 1600°C.

In this Webinar, we will show how thermal analysis is used to analyze inorganic materials and will present some typical examples of samples measured by DSC, TGA, TMA, or DMA.

Thermal analysis can be used for the quality control as well as the further development of inorganic materials. A sample of a few milligrams is sufficient to measure the most important properties and characteristics of such materials. These include the specific heat capacity, glass transition, expansion coefficient, melting, crystallization, decomposition and moisture content.

In this web-based Seminar (Webinar), we will present the main techniques of thermal analysis and present some typical applications.

The Webinar covers the following topics:

  • Introduction
  • Basic properties of inorganics
  • Typical questions
  • Thermal analysis
  • Industries and applications
  • Instrumentation and applications
    - Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
    - Thermogravimetry (TGA)
    - Thermomechanical Analysis (TMA)
    - Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA)
  • Summary
