Characterization of Porous Silicon by Calorimetry

  title={Characterization of Porous Silicon by Calorimetry},
  author={Jarno Salonen},
Thermal analysis and calorimetry offer versatile possibilities to study different physical and chemical changes in materials. Calorimetry gives accurate and valuable information on phase transitions of nanostructured materials and is therefore very useful in studies of mesoporous materials. The use of calorimetry in porous silicon research focusing on drug delivery applications and pore morphology determination is reviewed.
