The experimental studies of frameworks have been focused on many classes of materials: metals, zeolites, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), nano oxides, etc. Understanding their sorption properties, thermodynamic stability and the energetics of gas-solid interactions is essential for their applications.
Differential Scanning Calorimetry is the ideal thermal stability screening, small-scale (mg) tool for laboratories involved in process safety and thermal hazards investigations. The flexibility of such a technique allows the investigations with different experimental conditions to predict the various situations that can occur during a decomposition and to simulate the different parameters that can affect such phenomena.
Nanomaterials have become extremely important in applications as catalysts, batteries, and sensors because of the high surface-to-volume ratio, which makes them more reactive than the macroscopic analogues.
The application of coupled techniques in the field of thermogravimetric analysis is well established, particularly for the investigation of the chemistry of thermal decompositions and identification of the evolved species
This webinar will compare the two techniques in offering a better understanding of their core capabilities and limitations.
