Thermal Analysis, Volume 1: Instrumentation, Organic Materials, and Polymers is a collection of papers presented at the Second International Conference on Thermal Analysis, held in Holy Cross College, Worcester, Massachusetts on August 18-23, 1968. The papers highlight a wide range of applications, from fundamental thermodynamics and kinetics to industrial process development. This book is divided into two major sections encompassing 45 chapters. The first section emphasizes the developments in the instrumentation aspects of thermal analysis. This section deals first with the developments of thermal analysis equipment, methods, and their corresponding application to various fields, including in pharmaceutical research. This section also examines the technique of differential thermal analysis, microcalorimetry, thermogravimetry, mass spectrometry, pyrolysis-flame detection, and thermal volatilization analysis. The second section explores the application of thermal analysis to organic materials, such as polymers and elastomer systems. This section specifically looks into the potential of differential thermal analysis, thermogravimetry, and time-of-flight mass spectrometry in analysis of specific organic materials. Measurements of electrical conductivity, magnetic, dielectric, photoelectric, thermodynamic, and thermophysical properties are also provided.
