WEBINAR: HIGH TEMPERATURE THERMAL ANALYSIS APPLIED TO THE STUDY OF MOLTEN SALTS
There is a growing interest for molten salts in different fields, including thermal energy storage, heat transfer, catalysis or chemistry. High temperature thermogravimetry and calorimetry can bring key information on the thermal properties of pure or blends of salts, like melting / crystallization and heat, heat capacity, or thermal stability.
The webinar will introduce the techniques and their applications. It will be valuable for the researchers or engineers interested in the thermal properties of molten salts.

SUMMER SCHOOL AND WORKSHOP IN CALORIMETRY AND THERMAL ANALYSIS 2018
"Calorimetry and thermal methods in material science"
Calorimetry and thermal analysis methods, alone or linked to other techniques, will be described and applied to the characterization of catalysts, oxides, metals, supports, adsorbents, polymers, composites, food, pharmaceuticals, mesoporous solids, ionic liquids, phase change materials, heat storage materials, hydrogen storage materials. Examples will be given in various domains: catalytic reactions, air and wastewater treatment, clean and renewable energies, refining of hydrocarbons, green chemistry, hydrogen production and storage, CO2 capture, interseasonal heat storage, food chemistry, polymers...
The described techniques will be the following: calorimetry, DSC (differential scanning calorimetry), TGA (thermogravimetric analysis), DTA (differential thermal analysis), TPD (thermoprogrammed desorption), TPR/TPO (thermoprogrammed reduction/oxidation), and coupled techniques as Calorimetry – Volumetry, TG-DSC-MS, TG-FTIR, DSC – Gas Chromatography, Calorimetry - UV / Visible spectroscopy, Calorimetry - HPL Chromatography, Titration and flow calorimetry, modulated DSC,..
Thematic workshops on case studies will be organized according to the scientific interests of the participants (i.e. CO2 capture, hydrogen storage and production, thermochemical heat storage, polymer decomposition, catalytic active sites characterization, experimental set-up and instruments calibrations, experimental data interpretation…). Participants are invited to submit their wishes in the registration form (“Remarks” section). Participants are encouraged to submit a 1 page summary of their work to be considered for poster presentation during the workshop. Experts in the various domains of thermal analysis will be available for discussions.
