June 14, 2017: TGA and Simultaneous DSC/TGA Analysis Workshop

TA Instruments and MCL Presents:

TGA and Simultaneous DSC/TGA Analysis Workshop

Course Description

This workshop will discuss capabilities of the thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), and Simultaneous TGA/DSC including the SDT Q600 from TA Instruments. This instrument provides simultaneous measurement of weight change (TGA) and true differential heat flow (DSC) on the same sample from ambient temperature to 1500 ˚C. The morning session will review measurement theory, instrumental design, experimental and method development considerations.  The afternoon session will introduce advanced techniques, such as dynamic atmosphere, hi-resolution techniques, kinetics analysis and evolved gas analysis applications.

This workshop is open to all researchers with a RIMS account and is being offered at a reduced price of due to the generous support of TA instruments, space is limited and lunch is included.
