About Spectral Libraries
- Each spectrum in the library includes information on manufacturer, chemical name, product name, chemical abstract number, and category name, where available.
- The Polymer Additives and Plasticizers Spectral Library features 1,799 spectra collected by Chemir/Polytech Laboratories and Dr. John Kokosa. It includes thermoplastics, thermoset resins, engineering polymers, monomers and catalysts as well as plasticizers, mold release agents, inorganic fillers, antistatic agents, surfactants and colorants.
- Each spectrum includes information on manufacturer, chemical name, product name, chemical abstract number and category name, where available
- 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.
