Polymers — polystyrene with narrow molar mass distribution

The ability to determine Specific Heat Capacity (cp)Heat capacity is a material-specific physical quantity, determined by the amount of heat supplied to specimen, divided by the resulting temperature increase. The specific heat capacity is related to a unit mass of the specimen.specific heat capacity for the most varied of materials is an important task for the DSC. A mean error of < 2% was attained on NIST Standard Reference Material 705a, a polystyrene with narrow molar mass distribution, by using a heating rate of 10 K/min and various analysis methods.
