Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) – the analytical technique used to measure the enthalpy changes in the sample due to changes in its physical and chemical properties as a function of temperature or time.

Application of the DSC method:

  • first- and second-order phase transitions studies
    •  melting point
    •  crystallization
    •  solid-solid phase transition
    •  glass transition
  • chemical reactions studies with heat emission or with heat absorption including:
    •  thermal decomposition
    •  dissociation
    •  polymerization

We offer a thermal analysis for the various sample using Mettler Toledo DSC calorimeter including:

  • determination of melting point
  • determination of glass transition temperature
  • studies on the polymorphism and pseudopolymorphism of pharmaceuticals substances
  • phase diagram study
  • purity determination
