differential scanning calorimetry

[‚dif·ə¦ren·chəl ¦skan·iŋ ‚kal·ə′rim·ə·trē]
(analytical chemistry)
A method in which a sample and a reference are individually heated (by separately controlled resistance heaters, at a predetermined rate), and enthalpic (heat-generating or -absorbing) processes are detected as differences in electrical energy supplied to either the sample or the reference material to maintain this heating rate. This difference in electrical energy, in milliwatts per second, of the heat flow into or out of the sample is due to the occurrence of a physical or chemical process.

Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) were conducted using Jade Perkin Elmer at University Technology MARA, Perlis at a heating rate of 10[degrees]C/min from 30 to 300[degrees]C and nitrogen low rate of 20 mL/min; 8-9 mg samples were sealed between aluminum hermetic pans and lids for all tests.
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC): This is a contained, ramped-temperature screening test on a small sample of material (normally 2 to 10 mg) which provides an indication of the onset temperature and, more importantly, the magnitude of any heat release (A1-0.
