dc.description.abstractThermal stability and compositional analysis are important characterization for nanomaterials, especially for carbon-based nanomaterials. The general composition of carbon nanomaterials can be determined from the weight loss curve. Multiple decomposition peaks could indicate low purity or low quality of the carbon nanomaterials. The residual mass obtained after thermogravimetric analysis represents the metal content in the sample. In this SOP, TGA protocol was developed for characterization of nanomaterial thermal decomposition characteristics as well as metal catalyst content in carbon-based nanomaterials. Procedures and recommendations of sample preparation, instrument preparation, analysis and results are included. This procedure was tested on a variety of carbon-based nanomaterials.en_US
