The melting and crystallization behaviour of water restrained in polysulfone (PSF) hollow fibre has been investigated by DSC.
The PSF hollow fibre was prepared by wet spinning. The morphology of the fibre was observed by scanning electron microscopy.
The amount of water was varied by successive evaporation and it was observed that melting and crystallization shifted to temperatures
lower than those observed for free water. DSC and NMR studies showed that water in hollow fibres is in a restricted state.

The phase transition from the solid state to the liquid crystal state was investigated for the copper(II) salts of the fatty
acids with 10, 12, 14, 16 or 18 carbon atoms in the chain, by measuring the temperature dependence of the conductance and
capacitance of a cell containing the material under investigation. The temperatures deduced from these dependences agree reasonably
with those found by DSC measurements and with those to be found in the literature. Differences in dielectric behaviour between
the samples are qualitatively discussed.

of the β to α phase transition in silver iodide was investigated
by conventional and modulated temperature DSC and dielectric property measurements.
On cooling, the high temperature phase remained stable 2.5C below its
normal transition temperature even at a very slow cooling rate 0.2C h–1.
Dielectric property measurements under conventional and microwave heating
suggested an anomalous effect of the latter on the β to α phase
transition in this material.

this study, 1 H NMR technique is described that can be used to estimate the phasetransitiontemperature ( T c ) of phospholipid. Figure 1 shows the high-resolution 1 H NMR spectra of liposome obtained from: (a) DPPC; (b) DPPC/5-FU; (c) DPPC
To investigate the nm-size dependence of structural and thermal properties for AgI, the formation of composites between AgI
and porous silica with controlled pore diameters of 10, 15, 30, and 50 nm was examined. The introduction of AgI within the
micropores of the porous silica was performed successfully by a salt-bridge precipitation method with using AgNO3 and KI aqueous solutions. The AgI formed within the micropores was identified to be β/γ-AgI, independent of the pore size
of 10-50 nm, by powder X-ray diffractometry. In differential scanning calorimetry, the composites showed thermal anomaly at
around 150C on heating due to the phase transition from β/γ -AgI to α -AgI as in the case of bulk crystalline AgI (Ttrs=147C). However, the transition temperature from α-AgI to β/γ -AgI on cooling decreased remarkably with the decrease of the
pore size from 50 to 10 nm. The result indicates the possibility for AgI particles with diameter less than 10 nm to exist
as α -AgI even below 100C.
