Differential Scanning Calorimetry is one of the most frequently used techniques in the field of thermal characterization of solids and liquids. In this technique the difference in energy input into a substance and a reference material is measured as a function of temperature, while the substance and reference material are subjected to a controlled temperature program. Rapid analyses, easy handling and high significance for research, development and quality control are some of the advantages of this analytical technique
DSC method can be used for the analysis of energetic effects such as:
  • Melting / crystallization behaviour
  • Solid-solid transitions
  • Polymorphism
  • Degree of crystallinity
  • Glass transitions
  • Cross linking reactions
  • Oxidative stability
  • Specific heat capacity
  • Temperature range: - 1500 C to 550 0C.
  • Heating/Cooling Rate .001 to 200K/min.
  • Specific heat capacity : Sapphire standards are available
  • Software : Proteus 8 version
  • Crucible available: aluminium 30/40µl
Sample required

10-30 mg Sample is required for analysis.


Samples should be non-toxic, non-explosive and non-corrosive.
Please ensure sample do not build up vapour pressure on heating.
DSC Measurements can be done only 300C less than the decomposition temperature of the sample.
