Thermal Analysis of Biopolymers
Thermal analysis can be used to investigate polymers produced directly by organisms, extracted from renewable biomass or synthesized from bio-derived monomers. The most important physical properties measured are the glass transition, crystallization and decomposition temperatures.
The four main techniques of thermal analysis, DSC, TGA, TMA, and DMA can be used to characterize polymers as a function of temperature over a wide temperature range, from –150 to 1600 °C.
In this Webinar, we will show how thermal analysis is used to investigate biopolymers and present some typical examples of samples measured by DSC, TGA, TMA or DMA.
Thermal analysis is a standard technique used for quality control, research and the optimization of production processes for all types of polymers. Just a few milligrams of sample is sufficient to measure the most important effects and properties such as the melting enthalpy, specific heat capacity, crystallization, glass transition temperature, expansion coefficient and different modulus values.
In this Webinar, we will describe the four main thermal analysis techniques and present some typical applications.
