The kinetics of polymerization reactions are studied in our laboratory using differential scanning calorimeter DSC data at various temperature scanning rates and analyzed by a computer code based on a theory developed and expanded in this laboratory. This created the need for an efficient data acquisition system with a variable and accurate programmable data collection rate. This report discusses one such successful data acquisition system using a Bascom Turner recorder BTR. It is a combination chart recorder, calculator, floppy disk storage device, and interface allowing data to be transferred to a printer, CRT, or computer. Step-by-step procedures are presented.
