[‚dif·ə′ren·chəl ¦thər·mō‚grav·ə¦me·trik ə′nal·ə·səs]
(thermodynamics)
Thermal analysis in which the rate of material weight change upon heating versus temperature is plotted; used to simplify reading of weight-versus-temperature thermogram peaks that occur close together.

In lignocellulosic materials, the combination of TGA and differential thermogravimetric analysis (DTG) allows to obtain the lignin content (GHETTI et al, 1996) and its influence during the combustion process because the lignin plays a critical role in the use of biomass to energetic purposes (FENGEL; WEGENER, 1989).
