DSC can be used to study the degree of purity of pharmaceutical active ingredients as derived from melting behavior, the OxidationOxidation can describe different processes in the context of thermal analysis.oxidation of fats and oils, or the Curing (Crosslinking Reactions)Literally translated, the term “crosslinking“ means “cross networking”. In the chemical context, it is used for reactions in which molecules are linked together by introducing covalent bonds and forming three-dimensional networks.curing of adhesives and powder paints as well as many other topics.
With TGA, information can be gathered about such topics as the denaturing of proteins, vapor pressure and solvent content of paints.
DEA can trace the flow properties of pastes and other masses, even during processing.
WithLFA, the Thermal DiffusivityThermal diffusivity (a with the unit mm2/s) is a material-specific property for characterizing unsteady heat conduction. This value describes how quickly a material reacts to a change in temperature.thermal diffusivity even of melts and liquids can be measured and the Thermal ConductivityThermal conductivity (λ with the unit W/(m•K)) describes the transport of energy – in the form of heat – through a body of mass as the result of a temperature gradient (see fig. 1). According to the second law of thermodynamics, heat always flows in the direction of the lower temperature.thermal conductivity determined.
