Differential Scanning Calorimetry
BeschreibungThe urgent need for a clear and practice-oriented guide to differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is resolved by this book. The authors provide the newcomer and the experienced practitioner with a comprehensive insight into all important DSC methods, including a sound presentation of the theoretical basis of DSC calorimeters. Emphasis is layed on instrumentation, the underlying measurement principles, metrologically correct calibrations, factors influencing the measurement process, and on the exact interpretation of the results. The information given enables the research scientist, the analyst and experienced laboratory staff to apply DSC methods successfully and to measure correctly thermodynamic values.

(Chimie Nouvelle, Vol. 22 (85), 2004)
"Recently, with the invention of modulated temperature DSC (TMDSC) techniques, there have been many advances in the instrumentation, computation and interpretation. The authors present a thorough discussion of DSC for the specialist in this second edition. ... . The strength of the book is the thorough treatment of the theory. ... This useful book provides a review of most aspects of DSC in the one volume. This book is a welcome addition to the library of DSC theory and practice available." (R. A. Shanks, Chemistry in Australia, January/February, 2004)
"Each of the first six of the seven chapters of the book is a fairly well-rounded presentation of the types of apparatus available, the methods of calibration and theories ... . These chapters are worthy of attention by both present and potential users of DSC. ... The last chapter deals with specific applications ... . This well-arranged book will help to further an understanding of the various facets of the technique and should promote its application to new problems." (S. L. Bark, Chromatographia, Vol. 60 (11-12), December, 2004)
