// Thermogravimetric analysis

The thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) measures the mass change in a sample based on temperature and time. Therefore, the conversion in the gas-solid reactions can be broken down into periods of time and the influence of individual parameters (temperature, pressure, gas composition) can be determined by changing the reaction environment. TGA makes it possible to study the individual steps of gas generation, gas conditioning and gas purification and it also allows materials like sorbents and catalysers to be characterised.
