Thermal analysis methods can be used to answer specific questions about nanomaterials. The addition of nanomaterials to bulk materials allows special material properties to be obtained for specific applications. Most of these materials are subjected to a wide temperature range in use and have to fulfill stringent requirements. Just a few milligrams of sample is sufficient to measure the most important properties and characteristics as a function of temperature.

Nanomatarials are being more and more frequently used to obtain materials with special bulk properties. These new materials are employed in many different application fields.

The four main techniques of thermal analysis, DSC, TGA, TMA, and DMA, can be used to measure the properties of the original nanomaterial or the modified bulk material as function of temperature or time over a wide temperature range, from –150 to 1600 °C.

The presentation covers the following topics:

  • Basic properties of nanomaterials
  • Typical questions
  • Thermal analysis
  • Industries and applications
  • Instrumentation and applications
    - DSC
    - Flash DSC
    - TGA
    - TMA
    - DMA

In this presentation, we will show how thermal analysis is used to investigate nanomaterials and present some typical examples measured by DSC, Flash DSC, TGA, TMA or DMA.
