Identification of various organic and inorganic compounds

FTIR Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy, is mainly used for positive identification of various organic and inorganic compounds in complex samples. Even very small samples, such as dots and stains in pulp and paper, can be studied with respect to composition.


Almost all types of samples can be studied and examples of some are: Identification of compounds in solid or liquid form without sample preparation. Qualitative / quantitative analysis. Useful in connection with problem solving, complaints, support to end customers and quality control of various raw materials.

Types of samples: Pulp, paper, cardboard, scrapes, dots, rubber cloth, printed end product, liquids, oils, smears, precipitate, fold cracking.

Various organic compounds: Polymers, biomolecules, aromatic compounds, aliphatic compounds, hydrocarbons.

Different molecular groups: Alkanes, alkenes, arenes, alkynes, arenes, esters, carboxylic acids, alcohols.
