Polymer Sample Identification Using Quest ATR

User Rating: / 1
PoorBest 

IR spectroscopy is a useful tool for group chemical species identification of a wide variety of sample materials, particularly for the classification of “organic” chemical materials based upon carbon atoms being present in the molecular structure. Many plastic and polymeric type samples which can be included in the category of organic molecular materials can be classified into particular “family” groupings and it is possible to identify the sample family types both qualitatively and quantitatively by use of the Attenuated Total Reflectance (ATR) technique as an IR measurement.

AP-22_3-F1-sThe inability to have children can cause great heartache for many couples, with infertility affecting at least one-in-six couples in Britain and one-in-eight in the United States. The most common cause is male infertility, usually characterised by sperm with little or no mobility. One treatment commonly used in these cases is in vitro fertilisation (IVF). This involves injecting sperm into the egg in a laboratory.

Trans-fat analysis by FT-IR

Introduction

There are three main classes of triglycerides—saturated fats, and unsaturated trans-fats and cis-fats. Unsaturation indicates the triglyceride contains one or more carbon–carbon double bonds. Most natural oils like vegetable oil consist of cis-fats and are poly-unsaturated, meaning they contain more than one double bond. The cis nature prevents solidification of the fat; trans-fats solidify more readily, which can lead to blockages in the bloodstream.
Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy functions well to analyse trans-fats.

A new tool to aid wavelength validation in the NIR region

User Rating: / 1
PoorBest 

The NIR (900–2500 nm) region was largely neglected by analysts for many years because of the complex nature of the spectra produced by water, proteins etc. in this region. However, thanks to the many and varied multivariate mathematical calibration approaches now available, broadly described by the term “chemometrics”, it has recently found new and important applications, particularly in the pharmaceutical and food industries for raw material and Quality Assurance procedures.
