Mass and energy changes within a sample can be measured as a function of temperature / time using the Differential Scanning Calorimeter / Thermogravimetry (DSC/TG) instrument. Approximately 20mg of powdered sample is required for each analysis. Depending on the nature of the sample and the analysis required, different reaction gasses and heating rates can be used. Generally two samples can be run in a day.
