Identification of Various Organic and Inorganic Compounds

RISE can assist the process industry with the analysis of small particles or stains that may occur in these materials. This enables the monitoring and control of raw material quality and processes in a highly detailed manner. It is also possible to examine samples in both solid and liquid forms without requiring complex sample preparation.


There is the opportunity to identify the presence of various compounds in a sample without the need for extensive preparations. This enables quick and efficient mapping of the chemical composition of a material.

In addition to identification, qualitative and quantitative analyses can be performed. This means not only determining which compounds are present in a sample, but also assessing their concentration or quantity. This makes the method highly useful for various applications, including troubleshooting, handling complaints, supporting end customers, and quality control of different raw materials.

Examples of samples include pulp, paper, paperboard, scraps, spots, rubber cloth, printed final products, solutions, oils, pastes, and incrustations.

When it comes to the chemical compounds that can be identified, the spectrum is broad and includes several different groups. Polymers, which are composed of monomers and categorized into thermosetting plastics, rubber materials, and thermoplastics, are one example. Additionally, biomolecules such as polysaccharides, polypeptides, lipids, and polynucleotides can be analyzed using the method.

In addition to these, various organic compounds such as aromatic and aliphatic compounds as well as hydrocarbons can be studied. Within each category, different molecular groups can be identified, including alkanes, alkenes, arenes, alcohols, esters, and carboxylic acids.

In summary, RISE offers comprehensive opportunities to study and analyze various types of samples and identify a wide variety of chemical compounds. Its applications range from quality control and troubleshooting to research and development across a multitude of industries and applications.

Methods, Intruments and Competences

RISE utilizes FT-IR Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR spectroscopy), an advanced technique used to analyze chemical compounds in various materials. By passing infrared light through a sample and measuring the amount of light absorbed at different wavelengths, FT-IR spectroscopy can generate unique spectra for each compound. These spectra provide information about the chemical composition of the sample and are used to identify different compounds and their concentrations. The technique is valuable across many fields, including materials science, chemistry, and biology.

RISE's extensive experience and high competence in handling and analyzing both inorganic and organic compounds, combined with our understanding of industrial needs and requirements, make us a reliable partner for solving complex problems, driving innovation, and ensuring quality and safety across various industries and applications.

Delivery time

Delivery of results takes place based on order backlog and the scope and complexity of the assignment.


You can help us preparing the samples:

When collecting samples, please remember to scrape them into a jar for sampling. Also, be mindful not to mark too close to the defect or problem.

Exposure testing will be conducted here at RISE. If possible, could you kindly send along references for process and functional chemicals/materials? Additionally, a good reference test to compare with the problem or bad test would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much for your cooperation and assistance!
