The paper presents possible applications of differential thermal analysis for study of the physicochemical properties of liquid/solid systems, mainly through programmable liquid thermodesorption from the sample under quasi-isothermal conditions. The results prove its applicability in the determination of solid physicochemical properties, and particularly in calculations of adsorption potential distribution, the activation energy of molecules adsorbed on the surface and the surface heterogeneity by means of computer techniques.
