Sorbitol — Glass Transition

Sorbitol is used as a substitute for sugar in many sweets, diet products, and medications. A proportion of 10% water in anhydrous Sorbitol causes the glass transition to defer from -1.7°C to -25.6°C (mid temperature). 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®)
