Instrumentation and Usage of Calorimetry in Polymer Science

Abstract

The instrumentation and application of different calorimetry techniques to measure thermal properties of polymers is discussed in this chapter. The working principle and usage of adiabatic calorimetry, standard differential scanning calorimetry, temperature-modulated differential scanning calorimetry and fast scanning calorimetry are described in detail. The thermogravimetry method as a characterization technique for polymers is also discussed herein. The measured properties of polymers include heat capacities and thermal degradation of polymers.
