In Thermogravimetric Analysis, a sample is heated to an elevated temperature, and the resulting change in weight is measured. This can be used to measure oxidations, reductions, dehydrations, and a bunch of other stuff. This is often performed in alumina or steel crucibles, and the sample is compared to an empty reference crucible. Often coupled with Differential Scanning Calorimetry
