FT-IR Spectroscopy in an Industrial Laboratory

Volume 38, Number 6 (Dec. 1984) Page 763-773

Chalmers, J.M.; Mackenzie, M.W.; Willis, H.A.

FT-IR spectroscopy is used widely in many industrial laboratories. In combination with techniques such as gas chromatography, diffuse reflectance, and photoacoustic spectroscopy, it provides a means of tackling certain problems which would be impossible or at least very difficult and time-consuming with the use of dispersive infrared instrumentation. This paper describes several examples in which FT-IR has proved to be of considerable value in dealing with problems from the research, development, and production areas of the plastics industry.
