Effectively perform qualitative identification of compounds with the Thermo Scientific™ Aldrich™ Collection of FT-IR Spectra Edition II, comprehensive collection of FT-IR spectral references.
Take the guesswork out of your spectral analysis and create greater efficiencies in your lab. Our comprehensive libraries feature fully-reviewed, high-quality spectroscopy databases, enabling confident compound identification for a variety of environmental, forensic, pharmaceutical and industrial applications.
This high resolution library contains the most common chemicals found in The Aldrich Handbook of Fine Chemicals
Contains spectra of 18,454 pure compounds
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.
