This data shows the TGA-MS results for the decomposition of ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer. The first step involves the decomposition of the vinyl acetate phase, resulting in the production of acetic acid. By monitoring signals typical of acetic acid, the production of the offgas compound is readily detected. The second step involves the thermal decomposition of the polyethylene phase, and its unique decomposition products are easily identified and recorded. TA Instruments Thermogravimetric Analyzers are the ideal platform for evolved gas analysis studies. Each TA Instruments TGA features a...

Sample Pans TA Instruments has been the pioneer in advancing the science of improved resolution TGA techniques and in providing powerful but easily used software to accelerate material decomposition kinetic studies while preserving data quality. High Resolution TGA™ (Hi-Res™ TGA) Hi-Res TGA* is a patented furnace control technology that produces significant improvements over standard linear heating rate TGA in the separation of closely occurring decomposition events. Both the Discovery TGA and the Q500 designs are ideal for this purpose, with rapid response furnaces for precise temperature control...

Applications Compositional Analysis This figure compares the decomposition profile plots of a polyurethane material by standard and by Hi-Res™ TGA. The resolution superiority of the Hi-Res technique is clearly evident in both the TGA and first derivative (DTG) signals. The latter signal is especially useful in defining the onset and endset of the individual weight loss segments, as well as indicating subtle events that help to provide a “fingerprint” of the sample under the analysis conditions. TGA is used to determine sample composition by measuring the weight of each component as it volatilizes...

Flame Retardant Moisture Content & Thermal Stability of a Pharmaceutical Material TGA is a useful technique for determining the absolute and relative thermal stability of pharmaceutical compounds, as well as the moisture content. In this example, an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) is analyzed by TGA at a heating rate of 10°C/min. The data show a small (~2%) weight loss below 150°C, which is typical for adsorbed water. The material is relatively stable up to 200°C, after which a large, multi-step weight loss is indicative of thermal decomposition. Method Log: 1: Ramp 20˚C/min to 650˚C 2:...
