This application note demonstrates the use of the Double Furnace DSC for the better and more complete characterization of hot melt adhesives.
The processing and handling behavior of food fats has been found to depend upon the solid-to-liquid fat ratio in the food sample. Many rheological or flow properties, and their resultant effect on the texture of the final product, stem from this fat ratio index. The Power Compensation or double furnace DSC yields excellent results for foods including the fat nature and content. The fast responsiveness of the Power Compensation DSC provides the highest possible resolution and this is critical for characterizing the various polymorphic melting forms associated with fats in foods.
The aliphatic polyketone copolymer (PK copolymer) is a perfectly alternating copolymer of ethylene and carbon monoxide. It exhibits many desirable engineering thermoplastic properties, such as a high tensile yield stress and an excellent impact performance. Its high degree of chemical resistance and superior barrier properties make this polymer an interesting, new thermoplastic for engineering applications. HyperDSC® is the premier fast scan Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) technique from PerkinElmer. This application note demonstrates that HyperDSC technique is really the most effective and most sensitive DSC technique available at the moment for the characterization of both the crystalline and the amorphous phase of a polymeric system.
Many materials have complex molecular structures that areable to exist in more than one crystalline form, a phenomenontermed polymorphism. Different forms may have differentproperties and, for pharmaceutical use, it is important tobe able to produce a pure and stable crystalline form of any material to be used as a drug compound. Using a Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC), different forms of such materials may be identified from their melting profiles and differing melting points.
Many polymers are semi-crystalline material. The percentage of crystallinity depends on many factors including chemical structure, interaction between polymer chains and processing conditions. One typical example is High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), a highly crystalline engineering thermoplastic. Historically, the glass transition for a highly crystalline material like HDPE could not be determined by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) since the step change in the heat flow signal as the material is heated through its glass transition cannot be observed at traditional scanning rates. In this study, an HDPE sample is used to demonstrate the increased sensitivity and ability to detect weak glass transitions with HyperDSC® using the PerkinElmer® DSC 8500.
Controlled cooling in the DSC represents a way to extract information from food products not normally accessible by other methods. Extra virgin olive oils have a distinct cooling profile that is different from lesser grades and apparently this profile is quite responsive to changes in composition. This gives a method for addressing adulterants as well as possibly identifying the varietal used to produce the oil. Futher work is planned on the effect of temperature and UV radiation.
When an aluminum alloy is solution annealed andafterwards cooled too slowly, an exothermal precipitationreaction occurs. With increasing cooling rate, theprecipitation heat decreases. Since the precipitation reaction is relatively fast, a fast cooling rate on the differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) is essential to obtain the critical cooling rate which is the minimum cooling rate at which no precipitation heat is detectable. In this case, it was determined to be 375 (±10) K/min. Such a fast cooling rate can be realized through PerkinElmer’s HyperDSC® technology.
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is a commonly used technique for studying polymeric; pharmaceutical; and energetic; materials. When considering which type of DSC to use to perform a specified measurement one typically chooses either a Power Compensation, or heat flux design.

Many pharmaceutical materials exhibit polymorphism, and depending upon the given processing conditions, the crystalline form may exist in two or more states. The existence of these polymorphic crystalline states is important for many pharmaceutical materials, as they can have a major effect upon the uptake of the active drug into the bloodstream once ingested and the shelf life of the drug. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), particularly power compensated DSC, has proven to be an extremely valuable technique for the characterization of polymorphism in pharmaceutical materials. This application note describes how the PerkinElmer DSC 8500 provides high sensitivity and unsurpassed resolution necessary to detect polymorphism exhibited by many pharmaceutical materials.
The concept of High-Throughput Design has gained more and more interest as a way to increase profitability and to decrease research costs. One technique that can increase the ability of a laboratory to evaluate formulations is HyperDSC™ or High Ramping Rate DSC. HyperDSC is the ability to quantitatively measure small samples at extreme heating and cooling rates, typically 100-500 °C/min.
Increasing the sensitivity and throughput of Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) analysis has always been a challenge for thermal analysts in research and development. DSC analysis becomes difficult for small sample sizes, high throughput applications, materials that may experience re-crystallization during melting or that decompose immediately after melting; resulting in unexpected thermal phenomena.
HyperDSC is a DSC analysis technique by PerkinElmer with fast scanning rates that eliminates or significantly reduces such unknown thermal behavior, enabling increased sensitivity and high throughput. Accurate interpretation of results and fast scanning make HyperDSC the preferred tool of the pharmaceutical and polymer industries to reduce time-to-market for new products and increase manufacturing efficiency. Read the application note to learn more about the benefits of HyperDSC for several applications in polymers and pharmaceuticals.
Therefore, it is a sensitive test and can be used to show the difference between various batches of material, which may show little difference under a conventional heating experiment. Batches with different crystallization behavior will lead to variation in the quality of the final processed product. For polymer resin manufacture, it can be used for, quality assurance purposes, the optimization of resin formula or the evaluation of a competitor’s resin.
Isothermal crystallization is a sensitive test and can be used to show the difference between various batches of material, which may show little difference under a conventional heating experiment. For polymer resin manufacture, it can be used for quality assurance purposes, the optimization of resin formula or the evaluation of a competitor’s resin. This application note demonstrates why PerkinElmer® DSC 8000 with power compensation is the ideal tool for isothermal crystallization experiment.
In designed formulations for lyophilized drugs, it is important to know the collapse temperature of the cake. If the collapse temperature is exceeded, the cake will collapse and the batch will be ruined. The collapse temperature is often associated with the glass transition temperature (Tg) of the frozen material and measuring this transition is the best way to approximate it. It is also useful to know the amount of non-frozen water, which can be estimated as the enthalpy of melting (ΔH).
Read the application note to learn how both of these necessary values can be obtained with the PerkinElmer DSC 8500.

DSC and Raman spectroscopy are both used to investigate crystallinity but in rather different ways. DSC can determine the degree of crystallinity very precisely and can also follow the kinetics of crystallization by measuring the associated enthalpy changes.
DSC and Raman spectroscopy are complementary techniques that are often applied to the same problems, principally to study phase transitions in solids. PerkinElmer’s state-of-the-art double-furnace DSC is heavily used in material characterization.
