White Paper 52352 - TGA-IR Analysis Using the OMNIC Mercury TGA Software


Procedures like failure analysis, process validation and competitive investigations often require that a sample be deformulated to identify components and to understand processing differences. TGA-IR provides tools for just this purpose. This White Paper describes the TGA-IR experiment and then focuses on the infrared data analysis, starting with manual tools and then describing the function of the Thermo Scientific OMNIC Mercury TGA software. This algorithm provides speed, thor-oughness and consistency to the analysis while enabling any level of user to extract useful information from TGA-IR data sets.
