ASTM International - ASTM E537-07
Standard Test Method for The Thermal Stability Of Chemicals By Differential Scanning Calorimetry
|Publication Date:||1 October 2007|
|ICS Code (Protection against dangerous goods):||13.300|
1.1 This test method describes the ascertainment of the presence of enthalpic changes in a test specimen, using minimum quantities of material, approximates the temperature at which these enthalpic changes occur and determines their enthalpies (heats) using differential scanning calorimetry or pressure differential scanning calorimetry.
1.2 This test method may be performed on solids, liquids, or slurries.
1.3 This test method may be performed in an inert or a reactive atmosphere with an absolute pressure range from 100 Pa through 7 MPa and over a temperature range from 300 to 800 K (27 to 527 C ).
1.4 SI values are the standard.
1.5 There is no ISO standard equivalent to this test method.
This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. 1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific safety precautions are given in Section 8 .
