Thermal Analysis of Organic Compounds

Small and medium-size organic molecules of natural or synthetic origin are often used as raw materials, additives, active ingredients, or processing aids in many industries. Because many of their properties are temperature dependent, thermal analysis techniques are an excellent tool for the successful characterization of these compounds.

Important Types of Analysis for Organic Chemistry

The field of organic chemistry covers the synthesis, isolation, purification, and reactions of organic materials. During synthesis and work-up processes, it is important to ensure that the desired compounds have been produced and to verify their respective concentrations. At this stage, the focus is mainly on reaction kinetics and safety investigations. When the final product has been isolated, properties such as purity, stability, polymorphism, melting, and reactivity are important. Many of the analytical methods used in these investigations rely on thermal analysis techniques such as DSCFlash DSCTGAevolved gas analysis, and thermo-optical analysis.
