Abstract  

Electronic microbalances, manufactured by CI Electronics Ltd., are used by numerous researchers to study processes and phenomena which can be followed by changes in the sample masses. Less sensitive electronic millibalances are incorporated into integrated systems for the quality control of small and valuable items such as pharmaceutical products and diamonds. A further application of microbalances is the automatic water sorption analysis of samples by the gravimetric method with the CISorp. This integrated system records kinetic and isotherm data of the changes in the relative humidity, sample masses, and temperature and allows the study of physical and chemical properties of sample surfaces.
