Melting of metals is used widely in DSCcalibration. Onset point is used for the temperature calibration and the area of the peak for the calibration of a heat sensor. It is surprising thing that there are no

instrumentation, calibration runs using five pure metals (In, Sn, Al, Ag, and Au) were performed before sample measurements according to standard procedures (DSCcalibration) so that temperature and DSC measurements were as accurate as possible. All measurements

commercially available from Fluka (both BioUltra ≥99.5%). The samples were carefully dried under vacuum and no further purification was performed.
The standards used for DSCcalibration were hexafluorobenzene, 99.9% purity, supplied by Aldrich
