Thermal Analysis of Particulate Quartz and of Polymer Decompositions.
NIOSH 1976 Jun:83-95
The determination of alpha-quartz (1317799) in dust samples using differential thermal analysis is discussed; variables include sample size and particle size. Differential thermal analysis and thermogravimetric analysis were also used to study the breakdown mechanism and decomposition products of polyvinyl-chloride (9002862), polysulfone, and polyurethane foam (9009545).
