This library provides a focused collection of gas phase spectra of interest in environmental monitoring.
  • Contains 3,300 spectra
  • Acquired by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the late 1970s and early 1980s
  • Spectra collected with a heated gas cell for use in the identification of typical GC-IR eluents
  • Data format: High Resolution (HR)
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&emdash;or at least classification&emdash;of the material.
  • Thermo Scientific libraries span applications for Hazmat, Forensics, Food, Polymers and Organic Chemistry.
