Characterization of polymer thermal transition by FITR and DSC techniques

Line of research
The thermal analysis is considered one of the main issues in materials characterization however, a comprehensive definition of material properties can be achieved by combining different techniques. Although DSC is one of the most used analysis, it is not able to describe the sample microstructural evolution directly and other techniques could be profitably combined with it. The FTIR spectroscopic analysis can distinguish local variation of conformations and specific intermolecular or intramolecular interactions involved in sample transitions, which ca be studied in detail at molecular level.
