Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) quantifies the energy changes in reactions such as melting, transition, crystallization and glass transition temperature and is mainly used for research and development; and quality control in the fields of polymer, pharmaceutical.
Rigaku’s DSC are heat-flux types. Several models are available depending on the maximum temperature and sensitivity difference.
The high-sensitivity type DSCvesta has several available options, such as a refrigerated cooling system, an auto sample changer, sample observation, depending on the objective of the measurement.
Differential scanning calorimetry
Characterize and quantifies the energy of a reaction associated with phase changes
DSC is a thermal analysis technique in which the difference in the amount of heat required to increase the temperature of a sample and reference is measured as a function of temperature.
Using this technique it is possible to observe fusion and crystallization events as well as glass transition temperatures and can be also used to study oxidation, as well as other chemical reactions.
