FYSC has been actively participating in the development of MTDSC instruments and methods since the introduction of the modulated dsc by TA Instruments and Dr. Mike Reading in 1992, developing methods for studying cure and vitrification in reacting polymer systems (thermosets), phase separation and remixing in polymer blends and polymer solutions,...

The phase behaviour of thermo-responsive aqueous polymer systems was studied by means of Modulated Temperature DSC (MTDSC). The systems investigated in this work display an LCST-type of demixing behaviour around physiological temperatures, which makes them appropriate for biomedical or pharmaceutical applications, like controlled drug delivery. A new analysis methodology was developed using ...
