Feature image 700 x 420pxThermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) provides quantitative information on the change in mass of a sample as a function of time or temperature. But TGA cannot identify or characterise the gaseous products evolved during a measurement.

The combination of a TGA with a mass spectrometer (MS) or a Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR) allows the nature of the gaseous reaction products formed in the TGA to be investigated online.

In this Webinar, we will discuss the advantages of TGA-MS and TGA-FTIR systems and present some interesting applications.
