The use of thermal analysis techniques in the field of biopolymers
Biopolymers are produced fully or partially from biobased materials. These biologically degradable materials serve as an alternative to the long-life-cycle polymers manufactured from oil and fossil raw materials.
Thermal Analysis of Biopolymers
Thermal analysis can be applied to explore polymers extracted from renewable biomass, generated directly by organisms or synthesized from bio-derived monomers. The most essential physical properties measured are the decomposition temperatures, glass transition, and crystallization.
In this webinar, the use of thermal analysis to analyze biopolymers is illustrated, and a selection of typical instances of samples measured by TGA, DSC, DMA or TMA are shown.
The presentation will conclude with a Q&A so participants can have their most pressing application questions answered.
