This library is an indispensable tool for scientists investigating gas phase materials.
About Spectral Libraries
- Contains FT-IR spectra of compounds measured in gas phase
- Most spectra were acquired by the Sigma-Aldrich Company using product samples
- Additional spectra were collected by Hannover University, University of Wurzburg and Thermo Fisher Scientific applications scientists
- Contains 8,654 spectra
- Data format: High Resolution (HR)
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.
