Thermal Analysis is a powerful set of methods for the characterization of pure substances and blends. Used either in complement with or as a supplement to classical techniques employed in chemical laboratories such as spectroscopical methods, chromatography or X-ray structure analysis, Thermal Analysis yields valuable information about the physical-chemical properties of materials. Typical areas of application are purity studies, the determination of melting or glass transition temperatures, polymorphism studies, the determination of phase diagrams, studies of interaction between components, the determination of thermal stabilities, the analysis of composites, and the study of decomposition kinetics. This makes Thermal Analysis to a versatile problem-solving tool in research & development, quality assurance and process optimization.
