The combination of Thermogravimetric Analysis with Infrared Spectroscopy (TG-IR) is the most common type of evolved gas analysis. Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) accurately measures the percentage weight loss of a sample as a function of temperature, but does not provide any information regarding the chemical composition of the evolved gases. Additionally, IR alone is not always sufficient for detecting the presence of components at low concentrations. This application note describes the development of a spectral library of TG-IR weight losses for polymers as well as the use of library-searching techniques for the identification of polymers and evolved gases from simple and more complex polymer formulations.
Microplastics are a major concern due to their impact on the environment. There is growing research into microplastics, typically submillimeter in size, and which often end up in waterways and oceans. They remain in a suspended state and can be ingested by marine organisms; thereby entering and accumulating within the food chain. Hyphenated thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC/MS), referred to as TG-GC/MS, enables in-depth characterization of evolved gases through real-time analysis of the products resulting from the thermal decomposition of the suspended microplastic matter. This results in greater information on the identify of the degradation products as well as details on when the degradation products are formed.
This application note describes a powerful analytical technique to measure constituents of microplastics using a hyphenated TG-GC/MS system.
Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) is one of the members of the family of thermal analysis techniques used to characterize a wide variety of materials. TGA provides complimentary and supplementary characterization information to the most commonly used thermal technique, Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). PerkinElmer offers a variety of high performance TGA instruments encompassing a wide range of application needs and operational requirements. The extended capabilities of the PerkinElmer TGA, as a valuable tool for polymeric characterization and quality assurance are demonstrated by these applications.
The objective of this study is to demonstrate the application of an analytical technique that integrates thermal analysis with gas chromatography and mass spectroscopy to identify and quantify toxic compounds emitted during the burning of electronics waste at different oxidizing conditions. The study simulates open burning practices that often accompany undeveloped e-waste recycling operations, and to provide information about exposure risks to these from emissions.
This study utilizes the TG-GC/MS hyphenated module to obtain accurate thermal decomposition data with subsequent identification of the evolved breakdown products. PerkinElmer can provide effective hyphenated solutions to in-situ study, the chemical nature of evolved gases during 3D printing. At the same time, since the TGA 8000™ can cover the temperature range up to 1200 °C, you can count on the TG-GC/MS platform to reverse-engineer target products regardless of a fully cured product or an additive included prepreg.
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.

Fuel cells offer cleaner and more-efficient energy than the internal-combustion engine. Many types of fuel cells are now available based on the electrolyte used, including polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFC), direct methanol fuel cells (DMFC), solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC), molten carbonate fuel cells (MCFC) and alkaline fuel cells (AFC). Each has its own electrolyte, cathode and anode as well as fuel type, typically operates in different temperature ranges and caters to different applications - among these, the polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell is the most widely used.
During the manufacturing of polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells, one of the most important parts is the membrane electrode assembly (MEA). One method to make an MEA is to print the catalyst containing ink over the gas diffusion layers - for example, carbon cloth. This application note describes how thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) can be used to check the ink formulation for quality control purposes and also to study the heat-treatment process of carbon cloth.
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.
The assembly and packaging phase of semiconductor manufacturing requires failure analysis and quality control processes which are of critical importance to final product quality and performance. Analytical measurements like Thermal Analysis allows users to analyze the thermal behavior of epoxies used in packaging, provides insights into material selection like slight weight changes used to measure important mate¬rial parameters like outgassing properties and thermal stabil¬ity, measure dimensional changes in material when subject to a temperature program, and many more.

This white paper discusses what testing is required at each step in the polymer production lifecycle from R&D to manufacture to recycling. It explores the analytical technologies that will meet those testing needs, and important considerations to help you select the instrumentation that will provide you with actionable and reliable data.
From raw materials through intermediate and end products to recycling, each company needs a comprehensive and targeted testing program to ensure the quality of their work and regulatory compliance. Some operate their own in-house testing whilst others outsource testing to a contract laboratory for all or part of their analytical needs. In both scenarios, it is important that the company or laboratory carefully evaluate their needs and the ability of potential suppliers, instruments, and software to meet those needs.
