Mettler-Toledo (MTD) Release: Webinar On Oxidation Induction Time (OIT)
4/21/2014 11:57:28 AM
COLUMBUS, Ohio (April 21, 2014) – METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to present a webinar on oxidation
induction time (OIT) Wednesday, April 30, 2014. In this webinar, we will discuss the different methods
used to investigate the oxidation behavior of materials and present some interesting applications.
The determination of OIT and the oxidation onset temperature (OOT) are standard procedures frequently
used to rapidly compare and assess the oxidative stability of materials. The same methods can be used
to study aging processes and the effectiveness of stabilizers. The use of higher pressures suppresses the
vaporization of volatile components, increases the rate of oxidation
and shortens measurement times. Many organic compounds
are attacked by oxygen and undergo oxidation reactions even at
low temperatures. Materials and substances such as plastics,
greases, oils and fats are easily investigated by thermal analysis
This webinar covers the following topics:
• OIT and OOT Methods
• Why use Thermal Analysis?
• Industries and applications
• Different instruments for the measurement of OIT and OOT:
»»Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
»»High Pressure DSC
»» Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA)
»»Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA)
After this presentation in English, there will be an opportunity to participate in a Q&A session and
discuss direct points of interest with METTLER TOLEDO application experts.
Registration and Information
The Oxidation Induction Time (OIT) webinar will be presented on Wednesday, April 30, at 9:00 AM
and 11:00 AM EST. Local time will be on the registration page. Registration is free of charge, and
participants can register at http://us.mt.com/us/en/home/events/webinar/live/OIT_TA.html.
