Temperature-modulated DSC methods are frequently employed for the separation of overlapping thermal events. For this purpose METTLER TOLEDO provides Alternating DSC (SW option not available in USA, CAN, JP.), which controls the furnace temperature by modulating the underlying heating rate superimposed by a sinusoidal modulation.
- Conventional DSC curve
- Reversing and non-reversing curve
- Cp' and Cp'' curves
- Separation of overlapping effects
- Frequently used for the investigation of compound mixtures as well as evaporation and curing reactions
- Investigation of the frequency dependence of sample response and transitions
