Raman microscopy: Comprehensive characterization of polymers
28 Sep 2020

During the 1940s and 1950s, polymer chemistry became increasingly efficient and also more complex, offering a multitude of new materials. Polymers are now unavoidable in many application fields.

Understanding the polymerization process, polymer structure, or identifying defects in final products is therefore very important for many laboratories. Raman microscopy is one of the most powerful techniques for obtaining accurate information when it comes to polymers.

From monomer identification and analyzing crystallinity for quality control purposes to advanced studies on multilayer materials, developing new formulations or monitoring degradation kinetics, Raman microscopy is the only technique able to provide accurate non-destructive chemical identification combined with high precision imaging.
