FTIR Spectroscopy Analysis

FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy) is an analytical method for determining, polymeric, biological, or in some cases inorganic compounds.

FTIR spectroscopy is used for structural characterisation of both organic and inorganic molecules in:

✅ Solids

✅ Liquids

✅ Gases

✅ Surfaces.

FTIR It is is a technology that characterises the spectra to identify materials.

In order to identify chemical properties, Infrared radiation is emitted for it to pass through (or reflect off) sample in order to collect raw data from the absorption.

The infrared radiation that is emitted by the FTIR is in the range of 10,000 to 100 cm-1. The sample molecules will then transform the absorbed radiation into vibrational and/or rotational energy.

The signal is presented at the FTIR’s detector as spectrum that ranges from 4000 cm-1 to 400cm-1. The signalled spectrum represents one of your samples molecular fingerprint.

The Fourier Transforms converts the raw data from the infrared emission into a spectrum which Medistri’s laboratory uses to study, analyse and identify the compound.

Since all spectral fingerprints produced by a molecule or chemical structure are unique, FTIR analysis’ are considered an excellent chemical detection method.

When identifying industrially produced compounds, FTIR spectroscopy is considered as a strong technique for quality control.

FTIR Spectroscopy Analysis is frequently recommended as the first stage of your material analysis process.
