This library provides high quality Raman spectra of the most common pharmaceutical excipients.
- 300 Raman spectra collected using an Thermo Scientific FT-Raman spectrometer
- All materials were tested via current United States Pharmacopoeia compendium methodology for identity and purity—only materials that passed these methods were used to create this library
- This library was created in collaboration with David E. Bugay and W. Paul Findlay of Bristol-Myers Squibb Pharmaceutical Research Institute.
- Data format: High Resolution (HR)
Textbook with explanation of spectroscopy techniques and the spectra of the pharmaceutical excipientsAbout 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, or at least classification, of the material.
Thermo Scientific libraries span applications for Hazmat, Forensics, Food, Polymers and Organic Chemistry.
