Heating Rate in DSC

Engineered materials are becoming more complex in attempts to meat increasing needs, such as enhanced physical properties. With that, their characterization is becomes increasingly difficult. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is a thermal analysis technique which tells of various thermal properties of a material such as phase transition temperatures. Many...

Heat Capacity by the Sapphire Method

The heat capacity of a material is a crucial property to consider when determining its functionality in certain applications. The typical SI unit of heat capacity (Cp) is Joules per gram Kelvin (). It is a measurement of how sensitive a material is to changes in temperature due to...
