Sample Controlled Thermal Analysis gives a short presentation of the spirit and history of SCTA and then focuses on: basic SCTA techniques, applications of SCTA in kinetic studies and applications in the study of ceramics, adsorbents and catalysts. Finally the expected future development of SCTA is discussed. This book is an invaluable reference for materials scientists, chemists, geologists, and engineers involved in the development of new materials, the manufacturing processes and quality control. It is also useful for research in solid state chemistry, materials science, materials in general, and analytical chemistry. Producers of thermoanalytical equipment and manufacturers of catalysts, technological ceramics and adsorbents for industrial or environment applications will find this an important resource.
