Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews of the second edition:

"In this updated and fully revised second edition, the authors provide the newcomer and the experienced practitioner with a balanced and comprehensive insight into all important methods and aspects of Differential Scanning Calorimetry … . Emphasis is placed on modern evaluation techniques, instrumentation … . The information enables the research scientist, the analyst and the experienced laboratory staff to choose the most suitable equipment, to apply DSC methods successfully … ." (Chimie Nouvelle, Vol. 22 (85), 2004)

"Recently, with the invention of modulated temperature DSC (TMDSC) techniques, there have been many advances in the instrumentation, computation and interpretation. The authors present a thorough discussion of DSC for the specialist in this second edition. … . The strength of the book is the thorough treatment of the theory. … This useful book provides a review of most aspects of DSC in the one volume. This book is a welcome addition to the library of DSC theory and practice available." (R. A. Shanks, Chemistry in Australia, January/February, 2004)

"Each of the first six of the seven chapters of the book is a fairly well-rounded presentation of the types of apparatus available, the methods of calibration and theories … . These chapters are worthy of attention by both present and potential users of DSC. … The last chapter deals with specific applications … . This well-arranged book will help to further an understanding of the various facets of the technique and should promote its application to new problems." (S. L. Bark, Chromatographia, Vol. 60 (11-12), December, 2004)

From the Back Cover

 In this updated and fully revised second edition, the authors provide the newcomer and the experienced practitioner with a balanced and comprehensive insight into all important methods and aspects of Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), including a sound presentation of the theoretical basis of DSC thermal analysis and temperature-modulated DSC (TMDCS). Emphasis is placed on modern evaluation techniques, instrumentation, the underlying measurement principles, metrologically correct calibrations, factors influencing the measurement process, and on the exact interpretation of the results. The information enables the research scientist, the analyst and experienced laboratory staff to choose the most suitable equipment, to apply DSC methods successfully, to interpret the measurement curve, and thus to measure key properties precisely. In addition, the new edition includes improved instrumental techniques such as Tzerotm and StepScantm, new evaluation techniques, more applications, and the latest references.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a useful and clearly written practical guide for a technique that is becoming more important for more people as the years go by. If I do have to get critical, I could say that its price is rather high for its size. Although it contains a few references to modulated DSC I would gladly see a second edition that incorporates that side of the story in detail precisely because this new development is revolutionizing the DSC field as we speak. It will make it even broader than it already is and the new users need a book that allows them a good and easy path in. Another thing that is missing is the subfield of microcalorimetry (on protein solutions etc).
The explanation of deconvolution techniques is rather meager because the authors find fourier transforms (too?!) daunting. Otherwise: a fine book

Format: Hardcover
This book gave me in depth understanding of each standard test method. It explains the test procedures, the sources of error and how to correct for them. Better written than most ASTM standards but still have room for improvement. It's not a "DSC for Dummies". I still have problem understanding certain parts of this book. Background knowledge of DSC is a needed. If your only source of test procedure is ASTM standards (and you are like me - have problem understanding them), this book will definately help.
