Determination of Density and Specific Gravity by KEM Density Meter

The Density/Specific gravity meter provides density and specific gravity mea- surements of liquids. It is capable of handling small amounts of samples, in a short time, and with high precision in the temperature range of 0 °C to 80 °C. The auto clean and sampling accessory allows the user to drain the measured sample, rinse the cell with two kinds of solvents, and air purge in the cell. This course introduces the background theory and technique, including a discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of the methods and general guidance for their applications. It trains the users on sample preparation and instrument operation. Following this course, the user is expected to be able to independently operate the instrument and perform basic data analysis. PARTICIPANT PROFILE This course is intended for students and research professionals from KAUST, and their collaborators from academia and industry. PREREQUISITES • Active Badger account

Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is a thermoanalytical technique in which the difference in the amount of heat required to increase the temperature of a sample and reference is measured as a function of temperature. Both the sam- ple and reference are maintained at nearly the same temperature throughout the experiment. Our DSC is equipped with the Refrigerated Cooling System RCS 90. The sys- tem provides the heat flow measurements of material transition processes such as glass transition, melting, and crystallization in the range of –90 °C to 550 °C. It has a four-axis robotic autosampler to safely and accurately load the sample and reference pans. Unattended processing of up to 53 samples plus 1 refer- ence is possible. Furthermore, the chemical reaction such as thermal curing, heat history, specific heat capacity, and purity analysis are also measurable. This course introduces the background theory and technique of DSC, including a discussion of its strengths and weaknesses and general guidance for its applica- tions. It trains users on sample preparation, instrument operation and software usage, and gathering the data using a single gas. Following this course, the user is expected to be able to independently operate the instrument and perform basic data analysis.
