AbstractThe subjective selection of smoothing factors for the analysis and comparison of DSC results is addressed. Four key equations are shown to relate the heating rate and the smoothing factor. The equations allow a comparison of data acquired i) at different heating rates and plotted against temperature, ii) at a single heating rate and plotted against both time and temperature, iii) at different heating rates and plotted against both time and temperature, and iv) at different heating rates, and shown exclusively in the time domain. The equations apply equally well to DSC and modulated DSC results, including derivative curves.
