Application eBook: FTIR spectroscopy: Sampling accessories to boost your research
13 May 2022

Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy is used to probe the molecular vibrations of a sample, generating a chemical fingerprint from the molecules present within the beam of light. The technique has been employed in numerous ways across multiple fields, but whatever the aim of the experiment, an accessory is required to contain the matter under study and direct the light onto it.

In this application eBook, we review the literature for some of the most advanced FTIR spectroscopy products and explore cutting-edge research across a diverse range of fields, including sections on: 

  • Liquid transmission analysis – from the analysis of biodiesel blends to the detection of fake fish oil
  • Attenuated total reflectance – the basics, penetration depth, advanced measurements, and more
  • Advanced spectroscopy – including catalytic studies and the spectroscopy of gases
