DSC Workshop - Melbourne

This Workshop is already sold out.

Thermal Analysis is a group of methods in which the thermophysical properties of a substance or a mixture are measured as a function of temperature or time while the substance is subjected to a controlled tem-perature program. Exact thermal data is the basic requirement for material syntheses, for describing a material’s behaviour, for exact material selection.

Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is the most commonly used thermal analysis method, primarily because of its speed, simplicity, and availability. This workshop will cover the basic principles of DSC including influential factors, sample preparation, methodical considerations, measurement artefacts and evaluation of measurement results along with practical applications and hand-on experience using the NETZSCH DSC/STA instruments. We will also discuss advanced methods including modulated DSC (TM-DSC), high-pressure DSC (HP-DSC), photocalorimetry (UV-DSC) and specific heat determination.

All attendees will receive a NETZSCH DSC handbook.

Refreshments will be provided throughout the day.
