A Research Center on Nanomaterials and Energy
Thermogravimetric Analyser coupled MS (TGA-MS)
Site : Advanced characterizations component (Room PK-2785)
Contact : Gwenaël Chamoulaud or Galyna Shul.

Instrument description :

Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) coupled with mass spectrometry (MS) allows to simultaneously study the nature of the products formed by decomposition reactions into the TGA system.

The TGA part (Q500), allows masse measurementa between 0-200 mg (sensitivity 0.1ug, precision 0.01%) and can controls the temperature up to 1000°C. Analyzes can be carried out under N2 or air in platinum (Pt), aluminum (Al) or alumina (Al2O3) pans. The device is equipped with an autosampler that allows the analysis of 16 samples successively. The furnace is a EGA (into quartz) which allows coupling to the mass spectrometer.

The MS (Discovery) is a quadrupole mass spectrometer connected to the TGA furnace through an interface heated capillary. The equipment allows mass measurements from 1 to 300 amu with a sensitivity in the order of ppb.
