Thermogravimetric Analysis

Thermogravimetric Analysis

Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) is an analytical technique in which changes in a samples mass are recorded as it is heated. This technique measures chemical and physical processes that occur during the thermal cycle.

TGA can be applied to pharmaceuticals, pure compounds, natural products and mixtures. It is a useful technique for determining:

  • Reaction Rates
  • Moisture Content
  • Ash Content
