    Assessing photostability (particularly of pharmaceuticals) is of growing importance, but hampered by a lack of reliable, rapid experimental testing protocols and instrumentation. In particular, most approaches require irradiation of the sample separately from the analytical measurement, which...

    A photothermal radiometry configuration that allows the measurement of the temperature dependence of thermal parameters of solid materials is described. Two procedures are proposed. The first one is based on a combination of phase and amplitude signal data collected at a single frequency and the...

    We introduce a four-step technique for the accurate determination of the heat capacity of volatile or air-sensitive samples using relaxation calorimetry. The samples are encapsulated in a hermetically sealed differential scanning calorimetry pan, in which there is an internal layer of Apiezon N...
