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.
29th and 30th March 2021
TAC 2021 will be run virtually this year on Monday 29th March (pm) and Tuesday 30th March (am) 2021. The conference is free to join.
John Duncan (Lacerta) – The Glynn Van-de-Velde Memorial Lecture
Hugh Tuffen (Lancaster University) - Thermal analysis of magmas – extreme hazards, extreme challenges
Ruth Tunnell (Qinetiq) – Challenges with the thermal analysis of energetic materials
There will also be short presentations from a range of instrument manufacturers.
Registration RSC events.
When you register for the conference you should receive an email from RSC Networks with a link to the conference. The email only mentions Monday but the same link includes Tuesday as well.
If you have not had an email from RSC Networks with your conference link then please check your junk email folder first and then try re-registering.
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.
