Based on the comprehensive biophysical characterization platform established through years of experience, scientists from Creative Biostructure are highly experienced and knowledgeable in the application of thermogravimetric analysis or thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA) on food, pharmaceuticals, polymers as well as many other materials.
TGA is a method of thermal analysis, in which the mass of the samples is measured against time or temperature while the temperature of the samples is programmed in a controlled atmosphere. This analytical technique is commonly employed in determing the composition of samples and predicting their thermal stability. From TGA analysis, we can provide information about chemical phenomena and physical phenomena, including chemisorptions, dehydration, decomposition, solid-gas reactions (e.g., oxidation or reduction), vaporization, sublimation, absorption, and desorption. In essense, TGA can assess the samples that exhibit weight loss or gain owing to decomposition, oxidation, or dehydration.
