This library provides high quality FT-IR and Raman spectra of common pharmaceutical excipients.
  • Contains 300 matched FT-IR and Raman spectra
  • All materials were tested via current United States Pharmacopoeia compendium methodology for identity and purity—only materials that passed these methods were used to create this library
  • Created in collaboration with David E. Bugay and W. Paul Findlay of Bristol-Myers Squibb Pharmaceutical Research Institute
  • The spectra were collected using Thermo Scientific FT-IR and FT-Raman spectrometers
  • Also available individually: FT-IR library (Part No. 834-019201) and Raman library (Part No. 834-019301)
Textbook with explanation of spectroscopy techniques and the spectra of pharmaceutical excipients for reference use.

About Spectral Libraries
Spectral library searching has long been an extraordinarily valuable tool in the analytical chemist's toolbox. Our extensive series of spectral libraries includes information specific to application, industry or spectral technique.
Spectral library searching based on digital matching of spectral signatures is a very effective way of performing qualitative identification of compounds. Because FT-IR and Raman spectroscopic signatures are based on molecular functional groups, even if the exact compound is not present in the libraries, the list of matching compounds from a spectral library search can often lead to identification, or at least classification, of the material.
Thermo Scientific libraries span applications for Hazmat, Forensics, Food, Polymers and Organic Chemistry.
