Thermogravimetric Analysis

Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) is a method of thermal analysis whereby changes in chemical and physical properties of a sample are measured as a function of temperature or time. TGA can provide information on physical events such as absorption, adsorption, desorption etc., and chemical events such as chemisorptions and desolvation.

Equipment currently available at ISIS includes the Netzsch F3 Jupiter and Hiden Isochema IGA, both located in the hydrogen and catalysis laboratory.
