It has always been difficult to perform analysis and characterization of substances in aqueous solution by using infrared (IR) spectrometry. We propose a new method in which ions are concentrated on the attenuated total reflection (ATR) surface of a germanium prism by using an electrophoretic means. The method may provide insolution. These results implied that the dissolved state of sodium decanoate in 0.06 M solution was different from that in 0.02, 0.04, and 0.2 M solutions.
