The laboratory has thermal analysis equipment that allows the study of weight and phase changes in the composition of the metal/metaloxide nanoparticles in bulk or supported on porous materials during the thermal treatment in different gas media (inert, oxidative, reductive). The detailed characterization of the materials used as catalysts is a prerequisite for achieving highly efficient clean technologies.
The apparatus for thermogravimetric analysis STA449F5 Jupiter of NETZSCH Gerätebau GmbH allows combined TG/TG-DSC and TG-DTA measurements. The system has a top loading with a vertical design and working with samples from 3 mg to 35 g and a resolution above 0.1 μg with a rate of 0.1 to 50oC/min. The apparatus is equipped with a vacuum pump to evacuate the working space and can operate in different gas media: inert, oxidative, reductive, with automatic gas control with a built-in controller to deliver a minimum of 2 gases, adjusted by pressure and flow rate (from 5 to 250 ml/min with a resolution of 1 ml/min) simultaneously.
