Use of High-temperature Differential Scanning Calorimetry to Investigate the ß-α Transition in Calcium Pyrophosphate
High-temperature differential scanning calorimetry was used to investigate the thermodynamic parameters of the γ-β and β-α transitions in calcium pyrophosphate (Ca2P2O7). The measured enthalpy of transition compared well with previous results when higher heating rates (≥20 K min-1) were used. Recommendations for optimal use of HTDSC in high-temperature phase transition measurements are presented.
