    How to Optimize OIT Tests

    OIT is the abbreviation for oxidative induction time. It provides information about the oxidative stability of mainly polymer materials. This information is important because plastic parts age throughout their lifetime due to exposure to environmental elements such as heat, oxygen, light and radiation. Aging causes the degradation of the physical properties of the polymers and will lead to their failure. Antioxidants are often added during the plastics formulation to hinder the aging caused by oxygen and to increase their lifetime. Because the reaction between polymers and oxygen (O2) is exothermic, OIT determination using Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is an ideal solution to study this process.

    Differential Scanning Calorimetry of Solar Battery Active Layer Material

    Organic solar cells (OSCs) are a new type of photovoltaic technology for converting solar energy into electrical energy. They have excellent characteristics such as wide material sources, light weight, simple preparation process, and flexibility. Polymer/fullerene solar cells using conjugated polymers as electron donors and fullerene and its derivatives as electron acceptors are currently important research topics. Through molecular design strategies, the basic properties of polymers and fullerenes and their derivatives are optimized. These properties include the absorption spectrum, molecular energy level and mobility of the two, and the degree of crystallinity. Among them, the crystallinity of the active layer material is also closely related to the energy conversion efficiency of the battery. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) can directly measure the melting enthalpy of the active layer material and infer the level of crystallinity of the material. This allows the user to estimate energy conversion efficiency and therefore infer the best ratio of electron donor and electron donor in the active material.

    This application note discusses how PerkinElmer DSC 4000 differential scanning calorimeter is used to test the heat flow curve of active layer materials in an organic solar cell, and the calculation of enthalpy of melting based on the melting peak to determine the molecular alignment and compatibility of the material.

    Detecting Weak Glass Transition (Tg) in Polymers by HyperDSC

    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.

It is essential to analyze the thermophysical properties of the end product for quality assurance purposes. Thermal analysis provides an ideal means of characterizing the properties of polymers, including polypropylene. Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is a particularly useful technique for the characterization of polypropylene. This application note demonstrates how the high performance DSC from PerkinElmer® can readily detect the Tg of polypropylene.

Although there have been significant advances in Li-ion batteries, issues still exist, such as unintended discharge, maintaining the integrity of important qualities like energy density, stability, safety, and cost. Innovative analytical solutions are required to test individual battery components during their development and production. They are also necessary to understand the state of the materials inside the battery over its lifetime.

    The Li-ion battery guide covers analytical testing tools such as FT-IR, GC/MS, ICP-OES, Thermal Analysis, and hyphenation - critical to the Li-ion battery industry, as well as those industries that rely on battery quality, safety and technology advancements.

    Measurement of Glass Transition Temperature (Tg) in Lyophilized Formulations

    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.

    High Resolution Characterization of Pharmaceutical Polymorphs Using Power Compensation DSC

    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.

    Determination of Important Physical Parameters of PPE for Effective Quality Control

    Quality control of personal protective equipment (PPE) is an incredibly important aspect of the manufacturing process. A lack of quality control can lead to an increase in failures in the products and in turn a loss of revenue for the manufacturer. It is therefore important to have a means to test polymer materials quickly while also obtaining as much information as possible.

    Three Material Characterization techniques are examined in this paper: infrared spectroscopy (IR), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). Each of these can provide valuable insight into the physical and chemical properties of the material used to produce PPE, ensuring they can be used to produce products which comply with important ASTM international standards; ASTM D6319 – Nitrile Gloves, ASTM D3578 – Rubber Examination Gloves, ASTM D5250 – PVC Gloves and ASTM D6977 – Polychloroprene Gloves.

    Wax Appearance Temperature Detection by DSC

    Paraffins and wax occur naturally in crude oil. There is a potential for wax deposition at every step from oil production to refining. The wax deposits reduce the internal diameter of tubular transportation pipelines, restrict or block valves, and impede other production equipment. Severe wax deposition can lead to a complete stop in production; which can translate into millions of lost dollars in sales. The amount of wax contained in a crude oil sample varies, depending on the geographic source of the crude. In clear crudes the wax deposition gives the oil a cloudy appearance. This temperature is called the cloud point, or wax appearance temperature (WAT).

    DSC is a very important tool for the oil field industry that allow for the measurement of the Wax Appearance Temperature, which is used to predict and prevent the occurrence of wax deposition. This application note describes how the capabilities of PerkinElmer DSC 8000 with its ease of use, multi-sample capability, and powerful analysis software that make it an ideal measurement tool for WAT.
