Application Note

A novel method (TG-IR) for the rapid determination of Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH) in soil

A gas chromatographic analysis of the extract can provide even greater sensitivity and more detailed compositional information, but further increases the time required for the analysis. Thermogravimetric analysis coupled to infrared spectroscopy (TG-IR) can provide detailed information about the amount and nature of the pollution, while requiring no sample preparation at all. This application note illustrates the kind of data that can be obtained with a modern TG-IR system.

Analysis of Polluted Soil by TG-IR Technique

One of the most challenging analytical problems with increasing importance is the possibility to analyze soil polluted by the dispersion of organic fluids which sometimes features particularly high boiling points. The current techniques used solvent extraction and headspace chromatographic analysis, have shown their limits. Solvent extraction needs time consuming sample preparation. Headspace makes it impossible to heat the sample at temperatures exceeding 200 °C, which risks not being able to identify the heaviest fractions of the polluting agents.

Characterization of Electronic Materials Using Thermal Analysis

A valuable application of thermal analysis (TEA) is for the characterization of electronic materials and components, including printed circuit boards (PCB) and encapsulants. The key properties that TEA can help address are softening temperature or Tg, completeness of cure, degree of cure, rate of cure, compositional analysis, degradation temperatures for stability assessment, expansivities, coefficients of thermal expansion, modulus (stiffness) and damping properties. PerkinElmer offers a complete line of state-of-the-art thermal analysis instruments (DSC, TGA, TMA and DMA) for the analysis and characterization of the critical thermal, physical, degradation and mechanical properties of electronic materials. The results are highly useful for research and development as well as quality assurance applications.

Plasticizer Characterization by TG-IR Application Note

Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) is a common technique that is used to study the weight loss during heating. It can tell you the percentage of weight loss quantitatively and accurately. But TGA alone will not tell you anything about the chemical components of the evolved off gas. The hyphenation between TGA and FT-IR is able to identify the off gas from TGA and give a more complete picture of material characterization. The TG-IR hyphenation technique has been widely used for the polymer industry. This application note demonstrates how to combine the strength of TGA and FT-IR analysis to offers a more comprehensive material characterization.

The TGA Noack Test for the Assessment of Engine Oil Volatility

Researchers in the automotive and petrochemical industries have studied the effects of oil volatility on engine emissions and oil consumption over the past decade. The standard test for assessing oil volatility has been the Noack and gas chromatographic techniques. The Noack test conditions are recognized as being more representative of those experienced by oils in engines during operation. This application note describes how PerkinElmer TGA 8000, TGA 4000 or STA 6000 instruments provide an excellent means of characterizing oil volatilities using the TGA Noack test, which has been developed to improve reproducibility and has taken into account better test conditions that closely meet ASTM D6375-09 specifications.
