Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA): TA Instruments Q500
TGA is a technique for determining the thermal stability of materials, such as polymeric composites and pharmaceutical compounds.
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC): Mettler-Toledo DSC1
DSC is a technique for measuring heat flow of phase changes in solid or liquid states.
UV-Vis-NIR spectrophotometer: Cary 6000i
UV-Vis spectrophotometry is a technique for quantitative analysis of chemical species which absorb in the UV-Vis-NIR wavelength range.
Fourier transform near-infrared spectroscopy (FT-NIR): PerkinElmer Spectrum Two N FT-NIR
NIR spectra comprise broad bands arising from overlapping absorptions corresponding mainly to overtones and combinations of vibrational modes involving CH, OH and NH chemical bonds. FT-NIR is a technique for determination of the concentrations of constituents such as water, protein, fat and carbohydrate in plant and animal tissues.
Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR): Bruker Tensor 27 FT-IR
FT-IR is a technique for identifying organic or inorganic materials by measuring the absorption of infrared radiation on the sample material versus wavelength.
