The Kinetics Of Melting And Recrystallization Using Normal Differential Scanning Calorimeter

The Differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) is a widely applied tool to study the thermal behavior of various materials, including melting and recrystallization. However, it is not an easy task to interpret the DSC results of polymer lamellar crystals since they will melt, recrystallize and remelt during heating. Consequently, the endothermal and exothermal peak are combining
