Webinar : High-pressure DSC
Increased pressure influences all physical changes and chemical reactions in which a change in volume occurs. For material testing, process development, and quality control there is often no alternative to DSC measurements under pressure. High-pressure DSC allows you to measure samples under defined atmospheres at up to 10 MPa as a function of temperature or time. Higher temperature and pressure accelerates reactions and shortens the analysis time. In this Webinar, we will discuss the basic principles of high-pressure DSC and present some interesting applications.
High-pressure DSC is used for research in universities, in the chemical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical industries, as well as for the analysis of plastics, paints, electronics and foodstuffs. It is also used to measure thermal stability (OIT), for safety and reaction studies, to separate overlapping thermal effects, to investigate sorption and desorption, curing processes, and to determine the enthalpy of vaporization.
The main advantages are shorter analysis times, the possibility of measuring materials under defined atmospheres and pressures, and better separation of overlapping effects to simplify the interpretation of DSC curves.
