The Commercial Materials Library contains 212 spectra divided into four material specific segments:
  • Epoxy resins (48 spectra identified by trade name)
  • Explosives (14 explosives, and 4 non-explosives collected by the Georgia State Crime Lab)
  • Minerals (56 spectra collected by Professor Paul Painter of Pennsylvania State University)
  • Polypropylene Additives (90 spectra of polypropylene additives, solvents and other materials identified by trade name)
Data format: Deresolved

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.
