Purity Determination by DSC

Useful Applications to Determine Purity of a Substance by Differential Scanning Calorimetry

The purity of ingredients, particularly in drugs and foodstuffs, is an important topic. Products with a high level of impurity may produce unexpected reactions, lose their efficiency, or even worse, create toxic compounds.

A Well-Established Technique

Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is a well-established technique for determining the purity of organic substances, which is an important quality characteristic for the pharmaceutical, food, chemical and plastic industries.

In this webinar, we discuss the basic principles of purity determination by DSC and present useful applications for different industries and workplaces, including research and development, industrial synthesis, and quality control.
