This module reviews the basics of melting point determination, its applications, and the operation and best practices for its measurement
|Who is it for||
All new employees in analytical quality teams including quality control and quality assurance, who are involved in performing and reviewing the melting point method
|Why it matters||
Melting point is a characteristic feature of a substance based on its intrinsic properties. This parameter is used to characterize new products, measure purity, and in some cases, identify specific materials from a list of compounds. Understanding the science behind melting point determination can enable analysts to perform QC experiments correctly and get to the root cause of any errors.
