The determination of the specific heat capacity at constant pressure (cp) is a common application for solids and liquids. The heat capacity can easily be measured by DSC, or at higher temperatures by TGA-DSC.
Sometimes, a so-called non-reversing effect (e.g. evaporation or crystallization) is superimposed on the cp curve. The determination then requires a temperature-modulated technique. In this Webinar, we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of different cp methods.
The Webinar covers the following topics:
- Definition of Specific Heat Capacity, cp
- Importance of cp
– Direct method
– Sapphire method
– IsoStep® DSC
– Steady State ADSC
