Thermo-optical analysis (TOA) is a widely used technique, which can be combined with DSC. TOA permits visual observation of the physical changes in a sample as a function of temperature or time. Combined with DSC, heat flow can be simultaneously recorded for a more comprehensive analysis.
In this webinar, we will present Thermo-Optical Analysis (TOA), also known as hot-stage microscopy, and some typical applications in the field of speciality chemicals and pharmaceuticals.
