The TG and DTA profiles of compounds such as calcium oxalate monohydrate and copper sulfate pentahydrate are well known. A TMA study of these and other compounds is presented which, in addition to providing interesting data on the physical nature of phase changes and decomposition temperature ranges, confirms the classification of TMA as a principal thermal analysis technique.

Der Verlauf von TG- und DTA-Kurven von solchen Verbindungen wie Calciumoxalat-Monohydrat oder Kupfersulfat-Pentahydrat sind wohlbekannt. Es wird eine TMA-Untersuchung dieser und anderer Verbindungen vorgestellt, was außer der Ermittlung interessanter Angaben über die physikalische Natur von Phasenumwandlungen und Zersetzungstemperaturintervallen auch die Einstufung des TMA-Verfahrens als ein prinzipielles thermoanalytisches Verfahren bekräftigt.
