α-Amino acids are generally studied by spectroscopic techniques, to determine their structure and distinguish between L and D forms (Caroline et al., 2009). Their study via thermal analysis is usually combined with other analytical techniques such as FT-IR, MS, HPLC, GC or NMR to identify the products of thermal decomposition (Kumar et al., 2006, Rodante and Marrosu, 1990). It is intriguing to ascertain whether thermal analytical techniques alone can provide useful information about amino acids, in terms of their physicochemical properties, and their techniques ability to distinguish between L and D forms.
