The Thermal Methods Group

The Thermal Methods Group (TMG) is a special interest group of the Analytical Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry with affiliation to the International Confederation of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry (ICTAC). There is close collaboration with other European thermal analysis groups.

TAC 2021
29th and 30th March 2021

TAC 2021 will be run virtually this year on Monday 29th March (pm) and Tuesday 30th March (am) 2021.

There will be no charge for registration for TAC 2021.

Invited speakers include:

  • John Duncan – The Glynn Van-de-Velde Memorial Lecture

  • Hugh Tuffen - Thermal analysis of magmas – extreme hazards, extreme challenges

Abstract submissions are welcome for oral or poster presentations on any area of thermal analysis or calorimetry. Submissions are particularly welcomed from PhD students and early career researchers.

Please see the abstract submission guidance and submission form.

Registration will open early in the New Year via the RSC events database.

The Mission of the Thermal Methods Group

To promote awareness of all thermo analytical, calorimetric and related techniques by a wide range of activities, including regular scientific meetings, training workshops and publications. As a regular feature, the group organizes two key meetings per annum. These are typically held in April and November. The April thermal analysis conference (TAC) covers a broad range of topics. The second meeting generally revolves around a particular theme or subject area. 


We are sad to announce that Glynn Van-de-Velde, our valued committee member and Past-Chair of Thermal Methods Group, was a casualty of COVID-19 on 10th of April 2020. This cruel disease took him away from us far too soon.
