A Fourier infrared spectrometer is an instrument used to analyse chemical substances. It determines the chemical bonds in a sample and their structure by measuring the sample's absorption of infrared radiation. The following are some of the main areas of application for FTIR spectroscopy:
Chemical analysis: FTIR spectroscopy can be used for the qualitative and quantitative analysis of organic and inorganic compounds. It can be used to determine the functional groups and chemical bonds in organic molecules, as well as the structure and composition in inorganic compounds.
Materials science: FTIR spectroscopy can be used to characterise the structure and properties of materials. It can be used to analyse the chemical structure and physical properties of various materials such as polymers, fibres, coatings, plastics, metals and ceramics.
Pharmaceutical research: Fourier infrared spectroscopy can be used to analyse the purity, stability and structure of drugs. It can be used to detect impurities, solvents and other components in pharmaceuticals, as well as for determining the crystal form and morphology of drugs.
Food analysis: Fourier infrared spectroscopy can be used to analyse the composition and quality of ingredients in food products. It can be used to detect components such as fats, proteins, sugars, moisture, vitamins and minerals in foods, as well as for detecting additives and impurities in foods.
Environmental monitoring: The FTIR spectrometer can be used to analyse chemicals in air, water and soil. It can be used to detect levels of pollutants, organic and inorganic substances, as well as for monitoring changes and trends in the environment.
