NEW PHARMA APPLICATION BOOK: "Thermal Analysis in the Pharmaceutical Field"

The book contains the following 8 chapters on more than 260 pages: 

  • Methods (DSC, TGA, STA and Gas Analysis)
  • Characterization of amorphous and crystalline phases
  • Purity
  • Thermal stability
  • Oxidative stability
  • Storage conditions and shelf life
  • Polymorphism
  • Compatibility

This book uses a variety of specific application examples to illustrate how the corresponding experiments are to be carried out and what conclusions can be drawn from the results.  

An introduction preceding each topic describes the necessary methods and definitions addressed within and establishes the connection to pharmaceutical issues. Appendices to various chapters provide further information; for example, following the polymorphism chapter, there is a section dealing with the relationship between polymorphism and thermodynamics. 

The handbook is available in English language.

NEW VERSION AVAILABLE: The Handbook "DSC on Polymers"

Knowledge Compact – The Handbook "DSC on Polymers" – Essential for the Analysis of Plastics, Rubber or Resins

The handbook DSC on Polymers provides you quickly and competently with helpful tips to enable you to carry out measurements on thermoplastics, elastomers, thermoplastic elastomers or thermosets and interpret the results. For 64 polymers, we have compiled measuring plots, measurement parameters, interpretation of the results and general material properties. Also chemical structures (if available), processing possibilities and application ranges, all of which are presented in a clearly structured and practice-oriented overview.  

The introductory chapters offer an easy-to-understand introduction to DSC (including special measuring techniques such as temperature-modulated DSC, Oxidations-Induktionszeit (OIT) und oxidations-onset temperatur (OOT)Oxidations-Induktionszeit (isothermische OIT): Relatives Maß der Beständigkeit eines (stabilisierten) Werkstoffs gegen oxidative Zersetzung, das durch die kalorimetrische Messung des Zeitintervalls bis zum Beginn der exothermen Oxidation des Werkstoffs bei einer festgelegten Temperatur in einer Sauerstoff- oder Luftatmosphäre bei Atmosphärendruck bestimmt wird.OIT, specific heat), lists national and international standards important for DSC measurements and describe their recommendations for the evaluation of polymer measurements. The DSC handbook is available in German and English. Reserve your personal copy today.

Focus on: 
Thermal Analysis of Polymers

Practical industrial topics are used to explain correlations between thermoanalytical measurement techniques and conventional test methods used in mechanics, physical chemistry and process technology.  

In addition, examples are presented dealing with material and component development. The significance of thermal analysis as a quick, economical test method is emphasized. 

Focus on: 
Thermal Analysis for Paints

This application book features a wide range of applications with practical examples from industry: 

  • Is the paint already cured?
  • How many and which solvents are still contained in the paint? 
  • Which emissions occur in the applied temperature range?  
  • Why can the paint be applied better by the competitor?  
  • Why does the painted part break? 

Thermal Properties of Ceramics

covering a wide range of ceramic applications 

  • Binder burnout 
  • Thermal shrinkage and expansion 
  • Thermal conductivity 
  • Phase changes 
  • Rate controlled sintering 
  • Kinetic simulation of sintering processes

Rotational Rheology: Interpretation of Data by Application

On more than 100 pages, it shows many exemplary measurements from the fields of:

  • Paints, Coatings & Inks
  • Polymers
  • Food
  • Pharmaceuticals & cosmetics
  • Bitumen, petrochemical and miscellaneous.
  • In an introduction, the basic concepts of rheology are explained, making this a small standard work, especially for beginners but also for advanced users.

Capillary Rheology: Interpretation of Data by Application

This new booklet delivers an introduction to the technology and subject area, discusses application examples, shows how to characterize fundamental material properties and provides measurements using advanced techniques.

The booklet provides an insight into how shear and extensional properties can influence behavior in application, whilst allowing processing problems to be investigated and production to continue on the factory floor. This highlights the importance and benefits for the material producer, processor and researcher.

Thermal Properties of Metals and Alloys 

This new booklet presents an introduction into the broad applications spectrum of thermoanalytical methods and illustrates how these can be used in determining thermophysical properties of metals and alloys.

After a brief outline of measurement equipment and methods, practical measurement examples on metals and alloys are shown and the effects interpreted. The work is intended to serve as both an introduction and an aid to practitioners and researchers alike.
