Thermal Analysis Techniques

METTLER TOLEDO's "Thermal Analysis of Chemicals" guide was designed to support thermal analysis users in the chemical industry by describing relevant techniques, along with the theory behind them and examples of the most relevant applications. The guide includes examples for how thermal analysis techniques can be used to:

  • Evaluate chemical reactions for safety and scale-up
  • Analyze chemical properties, such as thermal stability and ageing, kinetics, melting behavior, etc.
  • Investigate crystallization processes, decompositions, sorption and more
