Differential Scanning Calorimetry

Differential Scanning Calorimetry

Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is an analytical technique that measures the change in temperature and energy while heating a sample. DSC is useful in measuring a range of thermal events:

  • Melting Points
  • Crystallization
  • Glass Transitions
  • Decomposition Reactions

There are many advantages to using DSC such as:

  • Small Sample Size
  • Wide Temperature Range
  • Simplicity
  • Rapid Measurement
