Evolved gas analysis involves the qualitative investigation of the evolved gas products from a TGA experiment. These products are generally the result of decomposition, but can also evolve from desorption, evaporation or chemical reaction.

Evolved gas analysis is typically performed by interfacing a mass spectrometer (MS) or Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR) to the exit port of the TGA furnace.
