DSC-1, Mettler Toledo

Location  

146 Stepan Chemistry Hall

Capabilities

  • Sensitivity 0.04 mW for the measurement of weak effects
  • Resolution ± 0.02 K allows measurement of rapid changes and close-lying effects
  • Temperature range: from –150 °C to 700 °C
  • Heating rate 0.02 - 300 K/min. Cooling rate 0.02 K - 50 K/min
  • Star-shaped arrangement of 50 thermocouples compensates any possible temperature gradients, guarantees flat baselines and reproducible measurement results

Typical Use

  • Thermochemical reactions: Decomposition, pyrolysis, oxidation (transition enthalpies)
  • Phase changes: Melting, crystallization, vaporization, crystalline and glass transitions, adsorption
  • Phase diagrams and composition
