  • Data format: High Resolution (HR)
  • All spectra were acquired by Sigma-Aldrich, and were processed by Thermo Fisher Scientific
  • Represents the largest Aldrich collection of spectra collected entirely by FT-IR instrumentation
  • Eight smaller Aldrich Material Specific Sub-Libraries are also available
  • Includes The Second Edition of the Aldrich Library of FT-IR Spectra (a three-volume book set)
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.
