Results on the preparation and thermoanalytical investigation of aliphatic bismaleamic acids and bismaleimides are presented.
Correlations were established between the chemical structure and the thermal properties. The melting point and the thermal
stability of the bismaleimides decrease as the number of carbon atoms in the structure increases. Chemically imidized samples
have significantly higher thermal stability, which is almost independent of the chemical structure. Thermal polymerization
begins just after the melting of the materials. A thermal fragmentation scheme is proposed, based on the results of mass spectrometry.

Heat capacities of the carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with different sizes have been measured by modulated temperature differential
scanning calorimetry (MDSC) and reported for the first time. The results indicated the values of Cp increased with shortening length of CNTs when the diameters of CNTs were between 60 and 100 nm. However, the values of Cp of CNTs were not affected by their diameter when the lengths of CNTs were 1–2 um, or not affected by the length of CNTs when
their diameters were below 10 nm. The thermal stabilities of the CNTs have been studied by TG-DTG-DSC. The results of TG-DTG
showed that thermal stabilities of CNTs were enhanced with their diameters increase. With lengths increase, the thermal stabilities
of CNTs increased when their diameters were between 60 and 100 nm, but there is a slight decrease when their diameters were
less than 60 nm. The further DSC analyses showed both released heat and Tonset increased with the increase of CNTs diameters, which confirms the consistency of the results from both TG-DTG and DSC on
CNTs thermal stability.

Several studies have been carried out in order to monitor the biodiesel quality during storage in different conditions [ 8 – 12 ]. Storage stability may
central-station generation. Integration of large quantities of wind power has, however, presented some challenges such as absorption of reactive power from the grid during faults, which affects system stability in weak power grids. Power generation using
