Abstract

The Laboratory of Thermal Analysis, in the PMT, EP USP, currently possesses some equipment for conventional thermal analysis, and most of that equipment is still operational. The equipment requested will significantly modernize and complement the analytical capacities of the laboratory, because these devices are more sensitive and more accurate, while having capacities that are complementary to those of the current equipment. The essential focus of research conducted using the equipment in this multi-user laboratory will be the characterization of the thermal behavior of materials (differential thermal analysis, differential scanning calorimetry, and thermogravimetry), complemented by chemical analyses of their components and of the gases emitted during the thermal process (inductively coupled plasma and mass spectrophotometry). This FAPESP Multi-User Equipment Program project involves research teams at USP, UNICAMP, UFABC and Mackenzie University, although the majority are affiliated with the Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering of Polytechnic School. The project brings together researchers in the areas of metallic materials, polymer science, and ceramics with research that involves microstructural analyses, material properties, and materials processing, as well as environmental aspects related to the treatment of residues and the recycling of materials. The project team members have extensive experience in these areas, which will greatly increase the return of the investment made in this request. (AU)
