Item description for Differential Scanning Calorimetry: An Introduction for Practitioners by G.W.H. Höhne...
The urgent need for a clear and practice-oriented guide to differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is resolved by this book. The authors provide the newcomer and the experienced practitioner with a comprehensive insight into all important DSC methods, including a sound presentation of the theoretical basis of DSC calorimeters. Emphasis is layed on instrumentation, the underlying measurement principles, metrologically correct calibrations, factors influencing the measurement process, and on the exact interpretation of the results. The information given enables the research scientist, the analyst and experienced laboratory staff to apply DSC methods successfully and to measure correctly thermodynamic values.

A practical guide to DSC Aug 30, 2001
This book is a useful and clearly written practical guide for a technique that is becoming more important for more people as the years go by. If I do have to get critical, I could say that its price is rather high for its size. Although it contains a few references to modulated DSC I would gladly see a second edition that incorporates that side of the story in detail precisely because this new development is revolutionizing the DSC field as we speak. It will make it even broader than it already is and the new users need a book that allows them a good and easy path in. Another thing that is missing is the subfield of microcalorimetry (on protein solutions etc). The explanation of deconvolution techniques is rather meager because the authors find fourier transforms (too?!) daunting. Otherwise: a fine book
A good reference book for both beginners and experts Jan 17, 2000
This book gave me in depth understanding of each standard test method. It explains the test procedures, the sources of error and how to correct for them. Better written than most ASTM standards but still have room for improvement. It's not a "DSC for Dummies". I still have problem understanding certain parts of this book. Background knowledge of DSC is a needed. If your only source of test procedure is ASTM standards (and you are like me - have problem understanding them), this book will definately help.
