Abstract

Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) measures the excess heat capacity, ΔCp , of the bilayer system as a function of temperature. The heat capacity exhibits a maximum at the phase transition temperature, Tt , and integration of the area under the transition curve yields the enthalpy of transition, ΔHt : Δ H t = ∫ T t T f Δ C p . d T
