Sorbitol — Glass Transition

Sorbitol is used as a substitute for sugar in many sweets, diet products, and medications. A proportion of 5.5% water in anhydrous Sorbitol causes the glass transition to defer from -1.7°C to -25.6°C. Both samples remain completely amorphous after the rapid cool-down following the melt (which took place before the heating mentioned above). (measurement with DSC 204 F1 Phoenix®)

DSC 204 F1 Phoenix®

Very high sensitivity and resolution can be realized with this premium Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC), which also features an automatic sample changer (ASC), temperature modulation (TM-DSC), baseline optimization (BeFlat®), correction of thermal resistance and time constants (DSC-correction), even coupling to QMS and FTIR as well as UV-extension for photo-calorimetry.

STA 449 F3 Jupiter®

The STA 449 F3 Jupiter® combines the advantages of a high sensitive thermobalance and a true Differential Scanning Calorimeter. Various furnaces and TG, TGA-DTA and TGA-DSC sensors can be used, whereby the system can be easily optimized for the most versatile applications.

STA 449 F1 Jupiter®

With the STA 449 F1 Jupiter® NETZSCH is setting new standards. Unlimited configuration flexibility and unmatched performance are the foundations for a great variety of application possibilities in the fields of ceramics, metals, plastics, and composites over a broad temperature range (-150°C ... 2400°C).

Multiple Module Calorimeter MMC 274 Nexus®

The MMC 274 Nexus® can be used in conjunction with the DSC and the Accelerating Rate Calorimeter where its special features better match the application. The MMC 274 Nexus® is used for measuring heats of reaction, reaction rates, endotherms, heat capacities, phase changes, gas generation rates and vapor pressures.
