Abstract: In this study, the use of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is demonstrated as a powerful technique that can provide accurate and precise thermodynamic property values of environmental contaminants such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). In total, 47 high purity PAH certified reference materials were selected and analysed by DSC. Their onset melting temperature, enthalpy of fusion and eutectic purity were calculated from the obtained melting endotherm. In addition, the entropy of fusion which was calculated from the onset melting temperature and enthalpy of fusion, is presented. All measurements were evaluated in a metrologically, rigorous manner, including measurement uncertainties.
