This compilation is based on the peer-reviewed and selected papers of NATAS 2011


It is my pleasure to introduce this special collection of papers from the 39 th Annual Conference of the North American Thermal Analysis Society (NATAS) which was held August 7–10, 2011 in Des Moines, Iowa, United States. Approximately 200 conference attendees from around the world presented over 200 technical papers in multiple sessions over 3 days. Three Plenary Lectures were delivered by Guy Van Assche (Vrije Universiteit Brussel), John M. Torkelson (Northwestern University), and Andrew R. McGhie (University of Pennsylvania, and this year’s recipient of the NATAS-Mettler Award for Outstanding Achievement). The technical program, organized by the technical program chair, Prashanth Badrinarayanan, included papers, presentations, and posters covering the following topics:
