  • Basic principles of melting point determination
  • Typical melting applications and specific examples
  • Benefits of automatic melting point detection

Melting point is a characteristic property of a substance. It is the temperature at which the solid phase changes to the liquid phase. This phenomenon occurs when the substance is heated. In general, melting point determination is used in research and development as well as in quality control in various industry segments to identify and check the purity of different substances.
