COUPLED THERMAL ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES: THERMOGRAVIMETRY WITH EVOLVED GAS ANALYSIS (TGA-EGA)

WHEN: February 3, 2016 at 10:00am EDT

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. The main techniques currently are FTIR (Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy) or MS (mass spectrometry). However, these techniques have limitations, especially when a large number of molecules are evolved simultaneously. For that reason a more comprehensive TG-GC-MS technique, which involves a separation of the evolving species by GC and identification by MS, became a necessity.

SETARAM and Automation designed a TGA-GC-MS line allowing to coordinate TGA measurements with injections on the GC column. The system includes an appropriate automated sampling loop that allows either injection of the gas stream in the GC column or releasing it outside the system. All gases evolving from the TGA furnace also flow through the sample loop so their concentration in the loop reflects the exact gas ratio in the furnace. The whole line, including the sampling loop is designed to withstand high temperatures and can be heated up to 350 °C.

Examples on the applications of TGA-MS and TGA-FTIR coupled techniques on both inorganics and organics will be shown. Additionally, a study of the decomposition of polymers (TGA-GC-MS) will be presented in details to illustrate how this technique that can give more in-depth understanding of the degradation of complex substances. The presence of small quantities of heavy molecules with high boiling points (e.g. styrene dimer) can be detected in a gas flow rich in other substances.

This webinar will be of particular interest to thermal analysis and materials science researchers.

WEBINAR:THERMAL ANALYSIS AND CALORIMETRY APPLIED TO THE STUDIES OF NANOSIZED COMPOUND

THERMAL ANALYSIS AND CALORIMETRY APPLIED TO THE STUDIES OF NANOSIZED COMPOUND
Part II – NANO OXIDES

WHEN: March 30, 2016 at 10:00am EDT
Webex – Register for details

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 decrease in the particle size may result in a stabilization of different structures and phase assemblages, which will subsequently affect the functions and the applications of the materials. Being their main advantage, the high surface area and the complex interfaces require a special methodology to characterize them and investigate their properties.

The Thermomechanical analysis technique was used to study the sintering behavior of YSZ with nano transition metal oxides used as sintering aid. Both the densification kinetics activation energy of natural and synthetic hydroxyapatite were obtained using the same technique. The thermogravimetric analysis and the TG-DSC are the most suitable technique to assess the thermal behavior and the oxidation state of mixed Co-Mn and Co-Fe nano spinels.

The change in the thermodynamic stability fields and in the phase equilibria of several nano oxides. containing Co, Zn, Fe, Mn, and Li will be shown as an example. High temperature oxide melt solution calorimetry in a combination with a coupled manometric-calorimetric technique and TG-DSC was used to obtain the surface and interfacial energy of both hydrated and anhydrous surface.

WEBINAR: Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry in Process Safety Applications

Webex – Register for details

Thermal analysis and calorimetry applied to process safety applications

WHEN: May 11, 2016 at 10:00am EDT

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.
Isothermal calorimetry: to measure heats of reaction and kinetic parameters of these reactions on a few grams of sample material. It requires longer tests, therefore isothermal calorimeters must have a signal that remains very stable over time like C80.
Reaction calorimetry: To simulate a chemical process under conditions closer to the industrial ones, with larger volumes. Sensys DSC, C80 and DRC provide the accurate data that are needed for the evaluation of the safety of a given process, and the kinetics evaluation of these data with the AKTS software lead to the simulation of a variety of real-life conditions (kilo from to ton scale, and very long term behavior).

WEBINAR:ENERGETICS OF ZEOLITES AND OTHER FRAMEWORK MATERIALS STUDIED BY THERMAL ANALYSIS AND CALORIMETRY

Thursday, July 21st, 2016,
10 AM UTC-5 (New York, Toronto, Bogota)

4 PM UTC+1 (Paris, Brussels, Berlin)

Energetics of zeolites and other framework materials studied by thermal analysis and calorimetry

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.
Calorimetric measurements provide crucial information related to the synthesis and tailoring the materials properties; the characterization of the obtained products the sorption thermodynamics and kinetics. Combining calorimetry with a manometric system is used to obtain the differential, integral, isosteric heat of adsorption, and to study the regeneration and cycle life of the materials.
Additionally, combining it with manometric-calorimetric measurements and TG-DSC, allows studying experimentally the surface energetics of nanomaterials and particle size – properties relation.

WEBINAR : SIGMAMETRY – MEASUREMENT OF RETAINED AUSTENITE IN STEEL

DATE : October 27th, 2016 at 10am GMT+2

Some steel based alloys, when quenched after being overheated, form a given quantity of residual or retained austenite. Being able to control the martensite/austenite ratio of the steel means controlling the quality of the material. Sigmametry is a measurement technique for QC of materials from production. It is based the ferromagnetic properties of martensite. It is commonly used by companies worldwide, as it is a very simple and quick method. We will review and compare different retained austenite measurement methods using sigmametry.

WEBINAR:THERMAL ANALYSIS AND CALORIMETRY APPLIED TO THERMAL ENERGY STORAGE

SETARAM is pleased to invite you to our next 2016 Thermal Analysis Webinar.

We hope this information will help you further for your material science research and inspire your imagination.

When:
Tuesday, January 24th, 2017,
4:00PM UTC+1 (Paris, Berlin) – 10:00AM EDT (New York, Boston) in English.
You can ask questions in French as well!

Thermal Energy Storage (TES) is defined as the temporary storage of thermal energy at high or low temperatures. As most of the renewable energy sources (solar, wind, …) are intermittently available, the target of TES is to improve performances of energy systems with a smoother supply and an increased reliability. The three main types of thermal energy storage use sensible heat, latent heat or thermochemical heat. For each TES mode, various types of transitions or reactions are exploited.

The webinar will focus on how the thermal analysis and calorimetric methods can be used to investigate the different TES techniques and to characterize the transitions or reactions of typically used  materials (fatty acids, paraffins, organic substances, inorganic salts, adsorbents, clathrates).
