Innovation application: Testing Services Using Infrared Spectroscopy with Universal ATR Sampling Accessory

Title Testing Services Using Infrared Spectroscopy with Universal ATR Sampling Accessory

Infrared Spectroscopy is used by chemists to determine functional groups in molecules, identify the structure of organic substances, investigate the intramolecular and intermolecular interaction. We offer analysis of solid, liquid and polymer samples using infrared spectroscopy method with Universal ATR Sampling Accessory.

Description of the technology

There is Perkin Elmer FT-IR Spectrometer with Universal ATR Sampling Accessory (see Figure) available for recording infrared spectra. The Universal ATR Sampling Accessory is an internal reflection accessory that is used with a spectrometer to simplify the analysis of solids, powders, pastes, gels and liquids. We can record the spectra in infrared region from 4000 to 650 cm-1. The client will receive the spectrum as a hard copy or pdf. We can provide identification of the main signals in the spectrum. We can develop a method for qualitative and quantitative analysis of different compounds in sample.

Applications Our testing services are useful for fields linked to synthesis of organic compounds, as well as sectors of food, environment and fuel.

Attenuated Total Reflectance (ATR) accessories remove the need for transmission cells and KBr pellets when performing measurements on liquid, semi-solid and solid materials. The ATR spectroscopy works especially well for opaque samples or samples that are too thick for transmission.

Technology Readiness Level System complete and qualified
