Short Communications


With the use of the derivatograph it is possible to find similarities and differences between Plexauras and Plexaurellas, taking into account not only the moisture and ash content, but also the weight losses associated with the different thermal effects. On this basis thermal analysis is proposed for the rapid characterization of gorgonia.
