Many materials have complex molecular structures that areable to exist in more than one crystalline form, a phenomenontermed polymorphism. Different forms may have differentproperties and, for pharmaceutical use, it is important tobe able to produce a pure and stable crystalline form of any material to be used as a drug compound. Using a Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC), different forms of such materials may be identified from their melting profiles and differing melting points.
Renewable energy has attracted a lot of interest due to the limited supply of coal and oil and the environmental concern of CO2 emission. There are many different forms of renewable energy including: solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, and so on.
Optical adhesives are used in many industries where,solvents are undesirable. Semiconductors and chip,manufacturers for example can not afford solvents,depositing on components. Photo-DSC allows fast analysis,of the curing profile and measurement of the energy of,the curing reactions. Because photo-initiated reactions are fast and energetic,good temperature control and responsiveness are needed to get good data.,Power compensated instruments are the best choice for these applications
Many polymers are semi-crystalline material. The percentage of crystallinity depends on many factors including chemical structure; interaction between polymer chains and processing conditions.
When an aluminum alloy is solution annealed andafterwards cooled too slowly, an exothermal precipitationreaction occurs. With increasing cooling rate, theprecipitation heat decreases. Since the precipitation reaction is relatively fast, a fast cooling rate on the differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) is essential to obtain the critical cooling rate which is the minimum cooling rate at which no precipitation heat is detectable. In this case, it was determined to be 375 (±10) K/min. Such a fast cooling rate can be realized through PerkinElmer’s HyperDSC® technology.
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is a commonly used technique for studying polymeric; pharmaceutical; and energetic; materials. When considering which type of DSC to use to perform a specified measurement one typically chooses either a Power Compensation, or heat flux design.
Most DSC experiments on polymers are conducted by heating from ambient conditions to above the melting temperature. But, for some thermoplastics, which do exhibit differences during processing, standard heating DSC may not show any significant differences. A more sensitive test, for detecting subtle, but important differences between different batches of a given thermoplastic, is the DSC isothermal crystallization test.
There has been tremendous interest in recent years in nanocomposites – using small scale particulate fillers – to improve the properties of thermoplastics and thermosets. For example, the effect of using such small scale filler particles is such as to toughen the plastics, reduce vapor transfer, and improve transparency. One rapid way to quantify the effect of a particular filler formulation is to measure its effect on the change in,specific heat (Cp) that occurs at the glass transition (Tg).
Emulsions constitute an important product class in various industries including the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
Therefore, it is a sensitive test and can be used to show the difference between various batches of material, which may show little difference under a conventional heating experiment. Batches with different crystallization behavior will lead to variation in the quality of the final processed product. For polymer resin manufacture, it can be used for, quality assurance purposes, the optimization of resin formula or the evaluation of a competitor’s resin.
DSC and Raman spectroscopy are both used to investigate crystallinity but in rather different ways. DSC can determine the degree of crystallinity very precisely and can also follow the kinetics of crystallization by measuring the associated enthalpy changes.
DSC and Raman spectroscopy are complementary techniques that are often applied to the same problems, principally to study phase transitions in solids. PerkinElmer’s state-of-the-art double-furnace DSC is heavily used in material characterization.
This application note details the practical aspects of purity determination by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and explains the way that the purity calculation works. This will give thermal analysts sufficient information to make successful purity determinations using their calorimeters and understand how to avoid some of the common errors that may be encountered.
StepScan DSC is a temperature modulated,DSC technique that operates in conjunction,with the Power Compensation Diamond,DSC from PerkinElmer. The approach,applies a series of short interval heating,and isothermal hold steps to cover the temperature range of interest. With the,StepScan™ DSC approach, two signals are obtained: the Thermodynamic Cp,signal represents the thermodynamic aspects of the material, while the Iso K,signal reflects the kinetic nature of the sample during heating. The following,basic equation mathematically describes the StepScan DSC approach:
The UV curing of resins is important in materials science. Direct energy measurement and true isothermal operation are essential to a successful UV curing experiment. Since the UV curing reaction is fast, a fast response DSC is needed to capture the process. The double-furnace power-controlled DSC 8000/8500 with UV accessory is the ideal tool to study the UV curing process and to characterize the material properties before and after the UV curing.
The oxidation induction time (OIT) test following ASTM standard D 6186 or oxidation onset temperature (OT) test can be used to study the oxidation stability of biodiesel. The use of pressure differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) can significantly reduce the experimental time under accelerating conditions. Therefore, pressurized differential scanning calorimetry may be a useful tool to screen different antioxidants or different antioxidant concentrations for biodiesel fuel.
The differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) is a fundamental tool in thermal analysis. It can be used in many industries - from pharmaceuticals to polymers and from nanomaterials to food products. The information these instruments generate is used to understand amorphous and crystalline behavior, polymorph and eutectric transitions, curing and degree of cure, and many other material properties used to design, manufacture and test products.

Modulated Temperature Differential Scanning Calorimetry (MTDSC) is a capability for determining from a single, multi-step DSC method both the specific heat capacity and the heat flow data drom a kinetically controlled process (e.g., reaction or crystallization). PerkinElmer provides this capability with its StepScan software, which is also especially suggested for high accuracy specific heat capacity (Cp) measurement.

A simple experiment is suggested to demonstrate the response time of a DSC and to show how much time is needed for equilibration.
A calorimeter is a device that measures the heat exchange of a sample with its environment. Since heat is usually generated or consumed during a physical transition or chemical reaction; calorimetry is a universal tool to study such processes.
High throughput is a common concern for manufacturing environments. Recently, it has grown in importance for today’s busy research and analytical laboratories as well. Automation can be key to increasing a laboratory’s capabilities while freeing an analyst’s time for other work.
