    Abstract

    The use of modern thermobalances, with high sensitivity, fast heating and cooling rates, and good atmosphere control, has allowed the routine application of compositional analysis using thermogravimetry in solving a wide range of industrially important analytical problems. Using examples drawn from experiences within their laboratory, the authors show how the technique can be extended beyond the traditional areas of proximate analysis of coals and determinations of carbon contents. Less common experimental procedures are described, including the use of reactive gases, and the study of samples in liquid and paste form.
